Theories Of Migration. People move for different reasons. These differences affect the overall migration process. Although a comprehensive theory is unattainable, it remains a crucial task of demographers to explain why people migrate. Theories of migration are important because they can help us understand population movements within their wider political and economic contexts. For example, if outmigration from Third World nations is shown to be a result of economic problems caused by the global economy, then such migration could be managed with better international economic agreements instead of restrictive immigration acts.

Although the issue of migration has not attracted substantial attention within mainstream economic theory itself (Bauer & Zimmermann 1998:95; Lee 1966:48; Passaris 1989-7), eco- nomic explanations have nonetheless dominated popular and scholarly thinking on migration.

Topics of migration, mobility, and borders gained a new relevance in the world after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. The world has become acutely aware that national borders have taken on a different meaning and are no longer secure mechanisms that provide for the safety of any country's citizens. At the same time, international organizations and agreements have encouraged the movement of people as well as goods across borders. The authors of this volume describe how borders have become constructed and permeated through analyses on a range of topics, including migration, colonialism, refugees, minority politics, international politics, and identity politics. This group of international contributors address how these issues are situated in different parts of the world, including Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia, and the United States.
