Public opinion was largely hostile towards migrant workers, asylum seekers, and poor people from the South. Movements of the highly skilled were celebrated as professional mobility, while those of the lower-skilled were condemned as unwanted migration. ‘Mobility’ equalled ‘good’ because it was the badge of a modern open society; ‘migration’ equalled ‘bad’ because it re-awakened archaic memories of invasion and displacement. It seems to me that a focus on migration, rather than mobility, better reflects real power relations.

The suggested response is that migration researchers should seek to develop middle-range theories that can help integrate the insights of the various social sciences to understand the regularities and variations of a range of migratory processes within a given historical socioeconomic constellation. Such middle-range theories can form the basis for a conceptual framework which takes contemporary social transformation processes as a starting point for understanding shifting patterns of human mobility.
