Migration as it is usually understood in both popular and scholarly discourses is a sedentary concept: people living in one place move – individually, in large numbers, or as groups – due to worsening living conditions “at home” and/or better prospects elsewhere. Several definitions add that the movement must be intended to be permanent or at least turn out (historically) to have become permanent.
