INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION AND MIGRATION THEORIES

Journal Title: Social Affairs - Year 2016, Vol 1, Issue 5

Abstract

There is growing intellectual interest in issues associated with international migration. The literature on migration is continuously growing due to this trend. However, theorization of migration is not strong when compared to other branches of international transactions. This may be due to the complexity and diversity of the area covered by international migration. The paper mainly focuses on theoretical perspectives of international migration. In line with that, an overview of international migration is provided at the beginning. It is followed by types of international migration and migration theories. Prominence is given to theoretical perspectives of international migration and the classifcation of migration theories. In addition, shortcomings of migration theories are examined.
