background image Migration: Chapter 3  I.  Basic Types of Movements: 
a.  Cyclic movement: traveling away from home for a short period of time 
i.  We move within our activity spaces: area within which daily activity  occurs  ii.  Ex: commuting, seasonal movement,   nomadism: traveling along a definite set of space  b.  Periodic movement: traveling away from home for a longer period  i.  Migrant labor:   worker who crosses international borders in search of  employment  ii.  Transhumance:   seasonal periodic traveling of pastoralists (herder)  and their livestock according to seasonal availability of pastures  iii.  Military service  iv.  Going away to college  c.  Migration: a change in residence intended to be permanent  i.  Long term relocation of an individual, household, or larger group to a  new locale outside the community of origin  ii.  Types:  1.  International: travel across country borders 
2.  Internal:
  travel within a single country’s borders  d.  Guest workers: migrants allowed into a country to fill a labor need, assuming  the workers will go “home” once the labor need subsides  i.  Have a short term visa  ii.  Send remittances to a home country: money migrants send back to  family/friends in their home countries, often in cash, forming an 
important part of the economy in poorer countries 
II.  Concepts 
a.  Push and pull factors 
i.  Push factor: negative conditions and perceptions that induce people  to leave their abode and migrate to a new locale  ii.  Pull factor: positive conditions & perceptions that effectively attract  people to new locales from other areas  iii.  Push and pull factors that cause migration  1.  Economic conditions

to settle there 
b.  chain migration  i.  further migration to a place where  friends/relatives have already settled  c.  gender differences  i.  research indicates that globally males  1.  are more mobile, migrate farther, have more employment  choices and income  d.  Ravenstein’s “Laws of Migration”:  i.  Every migration flow generates a return or counter migration  ii.  The majority of migrants move a short distance  iii.  Migrants who move longer distances tend to choose big-city  destinations  iv.  Urban residents are less migratory than inhabitants of rural areas  v.  Families are less likely to make international moves than young adults  1.  Age rn we are at the most mobile
