The Direction of Future Research in Return Migration

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


In this essay it is shown that return migration is by no means the unexplored field of study that most of its students take it for. The essential theoretical weakness lies in the scarce communication between the relevant authors and the lack of coordination in their studies. Very little accumulation of knowledge has taken place. In this last section of this paper I shall try to point out, in a very broad way, where the gaps in our knowledge are and in what directions future studies could be most fruitfully made.
