Types of Return Migration

Part of the Publications of the Research Group for European Migration Problems book series (REMP, volume 20)


There is little reason to study return migration with theoretical instruments other than the ones usually employed in migration studies in general. The actual research concentrates on the classic migration topics: the demographic composition of the (return-) migration flow, the motives for (return) migration, the (re-) integration of migrants etc. The only crucial difference lies in the fact that it is impossible to study return migration without first considering the emigration factors. The most important question here is: was the emigration meant as permanent or only as a temporary step?
