Mind the gap? quantifying interlinkages between two traditions in migration literature by Joanna Nestorowicz( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Polish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Gap, split, divide are just a few among many words used in publicizing the divergence of literature on internal and international migration. In this paper we empirically test what has so far been just a conjecture. Using Web of Science data and bibliometric techniques we, first, provide quantitative measures of the size of the proclaimed gap. Second, we inquire into the existing conceptual overlap between the two strands of academic literature. Third, we search for channels through which research on internal and international migration can potentially blend into becoming a single, more holistic area of study. We find that there are significant commonalities between the two literatures when it comes to the journals where they are published, the academic disciplines they relate to, or the keywords by which they are defined. At the same time, however, it becomes visible that authors tend to remain in the realm of one domain and rarely cite papers from the other strand of literature. The latter is especially true for scientists publishing on international migration, who refer to internal migration publications only 4% of the time. In contrast, internal migration scholars have 25% of international migration papers among their citations

Do networks do the works? Migration networks among Indian entrepreneurs in Poland and Belgium( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The thesis deals with the notion of migration networks. The focal point of the study is on the functioning of networks among immigrant entrepreneurs. Indian businessmen operating in Poland and Belgium are taken as an exemplification of the analyzed process. Theoretical considerations reflect upon various theories of migration, which are relevant for the study. Based on this analysis, a holistic conceptual framework is developed, which defines three areas of research: the migration decision making process, endogenous business-related factors and exogenous factors affecting business establishment. Based on these three areas an interview guide is developed further in the thesis. This guide was used as a research tool in order to carry out 30 semi-structured interviews with Indian entrepreneurs in Poland and Belgium. The thesis analyzes the findings from this study, what leads to recognizing the main determinant of network functioning among immigrant businessmen
Moldovan migration policy dilemma brain drain or jobless growth? ; CARIM-East research report by Sergiu Porcescu( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since the 1990s, Moldova has relied on migration as a vent for labour oversupply and on inflows of migrant remittances as its main engine of economic growth. Labour migrants account for almost a quarter of the labour force and Moldova is one of the most remittance-dependent economies in the world. Although this resource-poor economy has grown in recent years, albeit not as fast as its neighbours, it has failed to create enough new jobs in new industries to offset job losses in legacy sectors. Thus, Moldovan economic performance in the 2000s can be described as remittance-led jobless growth. This is not sustainable in the long run and Moldova must widen its home resource base to create conditions favourable to achieving faster and sustainable economic growth. One such possibility is to invest in more job-oriented education and training. But this may intensify labour migration from Moldova. The paper considers opportunities for Moldova, an open economy with mobile labour, to "educate itself out" of the jobless growth

Internal vs external migration in post-Soviet space by Zuzanna Brunarska( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The paper addresses the distinctiveness of migration flows in the post-Soviet space east of the European Union: the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Georgia. Population mobility within this region is hypothesized to differ from extra-regional population movements due to the common institutional past of these states, all of which were once the USSR republics. Within the framework of the migration systems theory, the paper offers a quantitative analysis of the scale and mechanics of cross-border population mobility in the region. By means of island analysis, it examines the intensity and distinctiveness of intra-regional migration flows relative to those between the region and third countries. Next, an econometric gravity model has been applied to identify the main drivers of migration flows in the region. The resultant findings show that the distinctiveness of the intra-regional migration processes is questionable or at best rather weak as mobility of people from and to the CIS region is relatively high. Thus, it is argued that the existence of the 'post-Soviet migration system' should not be treated axiomatically. The region is increasingly integrated into the international division of labour through trade and capital mobility and the cross-border mobility of people also reflects this globalization trend
