Example text

Both men and women as well as all age groups are usually evenly represented among ethnic migrants. This is an effect of family migration that is dominant among ethnic migrants. In contrast, labour migration is characterized by a higher share of males and a concentration of migrants aged between 20 and 35. Ethnic migration, as a rule, is intended to be permanent migration. Return options are usually excluded, whereas return or at least the myth or wish of eventually returning to one’s country of origin is very often nurtured among labour migrants and refugees or is imposed on them by authorities in receiving countries.

There is a particular need to re-examine the explanation that has been offered by those who focus on migratory trends and ‘migration orders’, namely that recent migration cycles should be regarded as being caused by global systemic causes (Van Hear 1998). Accordingly, rather then focusing on social and political environmental explanations, which are influenced by the notion of regime (or systemic) change, DIASPORAS TO MIGRANTS—MIGRANTS TO DIASPORAS 19 the emphasis here is on personal and small group considerations, against the backdrop of social, political and economic factors that influence both the dwindling of diasporas and the emergence of new ones.

1992, 1995; Tölölyan 1996a; Van Hear 1998). Nevertheless, it has been suggested that a distinction should be made between various diasporas not only according to the status of their homelands (namely, whether these diasporas are ‘state-based’ or ‘stateless’) but also in accordance with their age and development. This has resulted in the distinction between ‘classical’ (or historical), ‘new’ (or ‘modern’) and ‘incipient’ (or emerging) diasporas (Weiner 1986; Sheffer 1993). During the last few decades, the dynamism of the entire phenomenon and of the development of specific diasporas, has further increased.
