Conditional Theories and Diverse Policies

On the Move

Filiz Garip

Princeton University Press

This chapter begins with the stories of three migrants to demonstrate the need to recognize that there might be different logics for migration, seek to identify the conditions under which each logic becomes salient, and devise diverse policies to achieve specific outcomes. It then discusses efforts to prevent undocumented migration that focus on border enforcement; the failure of alternative theories of migration to suggest straightforward policy prescriptions like the neoclassical model; ways of identifying “groups” of migrants; four contexts and four logics for migration; network effects in migration; and cultural expectations and family roles. The chapter also suggests general principles that can guide future research and policy.
