Migration, Development and Social Change in the Himalayas: An Ethnographic Village Study by Madleina Daehnhardt is a book that explores the social and economic impacts of migration on a mountain village in Northern India called Tejam. Published in 2019 by Routledge, the book uses ethnographic research methods to examine how changing migration patterns are affecting the lives of villagers. Daehnhardt argues that development initiatives aimed at the Himalayas often overlook the complex social dynamics of these mountain communities.

The book explores a number of themes, including:

  • The causes and consequences of out-migration from Tejam, such as poverty, lack of employment opportunities, and the desire for a better education

  • The impact of remittances sent back to Tejam by migrants, which can be used to improve housing, education, and healthcare

  • The changing roles of women in Tejam as a result of migration, as they take on more responsibility for household decision-making and agricultural production

  • The challenges of maintaining traditional ways of life in Tejam as villagers become more integrated with the global economy

Daehnhardt's book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the Himalayas, migration, development, or social change. It provides a rich and nuanced understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing mountain communities in the 21st century.
