Emigration and Dictators

Why do some dictators have open migration policies while others close down to emigration? Do emigration and remittances allow dictators to survive or do they threaten the survival of dictatorships? Under what conditions do dictators engage with their diasporas? And what kinds of consequences do remittances have for political behaviour under dictatorship? Do these consequences differ from those in new democracies?
