"Studies on the relationship between migration and development tend to assume an overlap between the distinction between the country of origin, country of destination of migration, on the one hand, and developing country, developed country, on the other. For this reason, the transposition of these studies into the analysis of the impacts of emigration in developed countries of origin is not direct. Taking as an example the case of Portugal, a developed country of emigration, this article discusses the conditions and limits of this transposition."
