It is generally considered that mobility is increasing in our society. Internationalisation is growing; travel is increasing; impulses, trends and new ideas from outside gain a more rapid foothold; distances diminish. At the same time, however, local ties are strengthening their hold in the sense that long-distance migratory movements are diminishing. High individual mobility — to places of work, education, recreation and service — is often possible without permanent migration. This, in broad terms, is the import of the “post-industrial paradox”, as it is termed — a paradox which is not as paradoxical as it sounds.1
