ABSTRACT
This article explores how the conceptualization, management, and measurement of time affect the migration-development nexus. We focus on how social remittances transform the meaning and worth of time, thereby changing how these ideas and practices are accepted and valued and recalibrating the relation-ship between migration and development. Our data reveal the need to pay closer attention to how migration's impacts shift over time in response to its changing significance, rhythms, and horizons. How does migrants' social influence affect and change the needs, values, and mind-frames of non-migrants? How do the ways in which social remittances are constructed, perceived, and accepted change over time for their senders and receivers?
