Causality Chains in the International Migration Systems Approach

Causality Chains in the International Migration Systems Approach Research into international migration lacks a commonly accepted theoretical framework, which would facilitate the accumulation of knowledge.

Abstract

Research into international migration lacks a commonly accepted theoretical framework, which would facilitate the accumulation of knowledge. This article aims to be a first attempt to construct such a framework and to incorporate causalities in the international migration systems approach. The author presents a theoretical framework in which four groups of factors acting on international migration are distinguished: economic, social, political and “linkages.” The causalities in this framework are derived from different international migration theories. The various positions of these whole theories within the framework are shown as causality chains. In a way, these causality chains form the time dimension of an international migration system
