The extant literature is unclear about the effects of remittances on economic growth and the role of governance institutions. This study contributes to knowledge by investigating how domestic institutional capacity determines the ability of developing countries to benefit from remittance inflows. The authors employ data for 106 developing countries over a 13-year period (1996 to 2013) to test 2 related hypotheses.
