Jeeyon Janet Kim publishes in Food Security
Jeeyon Janet Kim, Elizabeth Stites, Patrick Webb, Mark A. Constas, and Daniel Maxwell published “The effects of male out-migration on household food security in rural Nepal“ in Food Security in May 2019. The article examines the effects of male out-migration on household food security, especially for the women who stayed behind. The authors find that migration offers neither substantial nor sustainable improvements to the quantity or quality of foods consumed by households, but is allowing households to “live in hope.” Drawing on caste- and gender-specific findings, the article highlights the need to look beyond the financial aspects of migration when examining its effects on food security. This is part of the Promoting Agriculture, Health, and Alternative Livelihoods in Nepal project.
