In an attempt to shed some light in the process of development through migration, the purpose of this paper is to explore the effects of international migration on education in Albania. In doing so, it will examine the role of international migration on school enrolments, educational attainment, and household’s educational expenditures for individuals between the ages of 6 and 22. The analysis is conducted using the 2005 Albanian Living Standard Measurement Study survey, to examine the impact of migration on education across regions, gender, and age-groups (14 to 17 year old). Data availability allow us to also separate the impact of international migration by country of migration, and by gender of migrants. Across model specification, our findings suggest an overall negative impact of migration on education in Albania, with larger negative impacts for the rural areas and females.
