Interest in the phenomenon of migration from developing countries to Western industrialised societies is not a new one. In fact, scholarly contributions to the compendium of research and analysis dealing with the subject of migration, its mechanics, causes and consequences have now been accumulating for more than a century. The result is a compendium with a ‘largely fragmented set of theories that have developed largely in isolation from one another’ (Massey, 1996: 432). Examples include: neo-classical micro and macro theories, network theory, migration systems theory...etc.
