Sample text

The recent transformation of the Soviet migration order has been profound—although perhaps less so than had been anticipated. There have been significant exoduses of certain ethnic groups, notably of Jews, Germans and Greeks to regroup with their co-ethnics in Israel, Germany and Greece. But a muchheralded mass exodus of former Soviet citizens to the West has failed to materialize; the mass exodus to the West has in a sense been an acute non-event. Lack of familiarity with foreign travel, of already established migration networks, of information, and MIGRATION CRISES AND THE MAKING OF DIASPORAS 25 not least of convertible currency partly explain this nonmovement.

Economic migrants make choices, but they do so within constraints. For example, what is the balance of force and choice for the supposed “voluntary”, economic migrant who “chooses” to seek work in her country’s capital or abroad, but whose child would otherwise die if she does not earn money to pay for medical treatment? Forced migrants likewise make choices, within a narrower range of possibilities. But even in the most dire circumstances, there is still some choice, since some may choose to stay and suffer starvation or violence rather than leave their homes.

Unlike the previous two domains, often these precipitating factors are not so much measurable as observable, identifiable events. It is here perhaps that migration crises are manifested. However the precipitating events may not necessarily be phenomena affecting a population collectively; the death of a productive household member or the addition of dependants above a certain threshold may also precipitate a decision to migrate. Indeed, in the case of so-called economic migration there may no particular triggering factor or event– the proximate factors of themselves may be sufficient to stimulate the decision to migrate.
