Moving the focus and focusing not on the arrival of migrants in Europe but on departures from Europe to the South is a bold move at a time when the media insists on the "migratory crisis". The countries of the South are experiencing constantly positive economic growth rates and that some states facilitate the settlement of foreigners, new scenarios emerge, leading to a resumption of Europeans. This particular context leads researchers to renew their categories of analysis in order to give a closer account of mobility processes and to re-examine the causal relations between the economic crisis of 2008 and the departure towards the South. The concept of lifestyle migrations cannot summarize the richness of the mobility recorded today nor the multiple social and spatial skills developed by the mobile populations to make their way into this "new age" of migration. Alongside retirees and tourists who migrate to the South to work there, or expatriates, other profiles coexist, the trajectories of which have so far been very rarely documented. Recolonization of the South, return to family sources, backward mobility or itinerant migration between two continents: what sense to give to these migratory movements of a growing magnitude? Are they foreshadowing other further compositions and flexibilities, participating in a new global equilibrium?
This journal has the goal of promoting reflection on societies in the South to gain a better understanding of their contemporary dynamics and to demonstrate their diversity. The transversal nature of the topics examined encompasses texts from a variety of disciplines in the social sciences. Read more...
