Abstract

In a connected world, research takes a special interest in the mobility of ideas, goods, capital, as well as people. Mobility of people takes on various forms, and the diversity of migrants reflects this heterogeneity. Searching for analytical concepts to examine and describe the experiences of migrants, the terms exile, diaspora, and transmigration have become central to migration research and have attracted a lot of attention across disciplinary boundaries, including political science and sociology, ethnology and anthropology, and cultural studies and geography.
