Abstract: Migration and development are inextricably linked. Migration has existed throughout human history. The focus of this study was to establish the linkages between migration, remittances and development with particular reference to the island of Rotuma. The socio-economic, cultural and political facets of migration were examined at both the macro and micro level. Historical migration and remittance patterns and key concepts relating to migration and remittance were conceptualised. This guided the household survey carried out in Rotuma. The livelihood and economic activities of Rotumans, as well as reasons for Rotuman migration, and the destination of Rotuman migrants was examined. The study also assesses how remittances have impacted education, health and livelihoods in Rotuma. Quantitative and qualitative methodologies were employed using a triangulation approach. However, the research has a more quantitative orientation. Data was collected from both primary and secondary sources. Primary data was collected from the island of Rotuma, and all seven districts in the island of Rotuma were surveyed. The sample size covered 75 households in the study area.
