Abstract

The movement of workers from Bangladesh to Mauritius is exemplary of a south-south migration trajectory. Bangladesh is a low income country that relies heavily on remittance from migrant workers. Mauritius is a middle income country that has become an attractive work destination for Bangladeshi workers due to its industrial and cultural similarities. Using a qualitative exploratory method and a postcolonial sociological perspective, the paper presents findings from a study on health and well-being of Bangladeshi workers in Mauritius. The analysis shows that the discourse of health and well-being is absent in the labour migration model of both countries.
