During the first half of the 20th century more than 100 million people of the Northern hemisphere left their homeland or were forcefully separated from it; they migrated, they were displaced or deported, they fled from persecution. The question has been raised whether there should be a distinction between voluntary and involuntary migration since emigration is mostly the result of an involuntary situation, i.e. a conflict. Such a conflict may be caused by external circumstances and pressure or by inner psychological factors resulting from the personality structure of the individual.
