Review Guide Topics 14 Terms/Concepts Selfselection/migrant selectivity Supply constraints Poverty traps Wage gaps/wage differentials Path dependence Microeconomic model of migration New economics of migration Pull factors (in regards to migration) Migrant/social networks “Friends and Family” effect Social capital Cumulative causation Refugees Ethnic selection Temporal dimension (important to remember that there are 3 different models that utilize these dimensions) Vertical dimension Horizontal dimension “Pro” and “anti” coalitions Strong vs weak ties Structural characteristics of migrants’ networks Paisanaje Daughter communities Transnational Community Segmented migrant population Questions/Themes Summarize one of Walzer’s moral arguments in favor of immigration restriction then summarize one of Carens’ moral objections to immigration restriction. W hat are the implications of Walzer’s view of citizenship for his views on immigration? Does Carens have a counter to this argument? Walzer argues that “immigration and emigration are morally assymetrical (40).” Why might this be so? Why does Walzer find guestworker programs objectionable? As only some people choose to migrate, migration is a process that involves “selfselection”. What does this imply about the difference between migrants and stayers? Why might some people migrate and other people stay? Hatton and Williamson write that “the biggest challenge is to explain why emigration rates were often lowest from the poorest countries”, Why did emigration rates so often rise from low levels of successful economic development took place at home? What pull factors, produced by developed societies, might trigger migration from developing society? What is the origin of those pull factors? What does the concept of “migrant selectivity” mean? What factors influence migrant selectivity and how might migrant selectivity change over time. How do migrant networks lead to the persistence of migration? What is the difference between the vertical and the horizontal dimensions of policymaking? How and why do international factors influence immigration policymaking? What is the difference between security concerns and “soft power”? And how is that relevant to immigration policymaking? Why, according to Tichenor, do experts exercise influence? What makes immigration coalitions (“pro” and “anti) so unstable and difficult to assemble? What are the sources of stasis in immigration policymaking? How does the Hagen piece illustrate how and why migrant networks channel opportunities to newcomers? Why did male and female migrants have access to different types of opportunities? What is the relevance of the structural characteristics of the migrants’ networks: in particular, the extent of contacts among associates or network members; the degree of overlap in contacts (so that neighbors are coworkers are coethnics….or not); strong versus weak ties? According to Hagen, how did differences in migrant networks affect the ways in which male and female migrants were able to respond to opportunities to gain legal status? Does HernandezLeon consider the MonterreyHouston international circuit as an instance of a transnational community? Why or why not? According to HernandezLeon, what are the factors that impede persontoperson crossborder contact?
