000013003 520__ $$aNowadays labour migration plays a very important role in the mountainous  areas of countries such as Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and  Pakistan. The quality and direction of migration as well as its  economic, social, and cultural impacts on the life of communities have  changed, along with the increase in the numbers of migrants. There are  conflicting opinions about whether temporary labour migration promotes or  hinders the development of mountainous regions. While travelling along  mountain roads in Central Asian countries, the authors investigated whether labour  migration stimulates the development of mountain regions, interviewing  local inhabitants, migrants, businessmen, authorities, and local  representatives of international organisations. The data collected on their travels was used in an International Organization for Migration  (IOM) research project on labour migration in Central Asian countries,  Russia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan in 2004. The present article  summarises the results of their research and highlights a number of issues  related to the economic and social impacts of labour migration.
