FACTORS AFFECTING RETURN IMMIGRATION: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MIGRATION LITERATURE

Abstract

Author(s): Tuncay B?LECEN

Recent migration literature emphasizes the inclination of people migrating for reasons such as changing spatial dimension, economic opportunities, influenced by globalization and nation-alienation. This inclination can be either forward or backward for a temporary or permanent duration. As a matter of fact, the concept of "mobilization" is used instead of "immigration" in order to emphasize that immigration is an endless process at this point. Return migration is increasingly becoming interesting as a "win-win scenario" in migration literature. Although in the literature, it is assumed that immigrants contribute as a workforce where they go and after returning to their own countries, they contribute as a skilled manpower and contribute with the money they transfer back home, in contrast, the return migration is a controversial issue. In this paper, the relevant literature on return migration will be reviewed in a critical framework.
