Migrations and Migrants in Historical Perspective free pdf Les migrations sont recemment reapparues comme un defi majeur pour les Etats-nations de l'Ouest, en particulier en Europe. L'augmentation rapide des flux migratoires resulte de la conjonction complexe de facteurs repulsifs et attractifs - depuis les possibilites du marche du travail jusqu'aux migrations forcees. Cependant les migrations sont enracinees dans un passe parfois lointain et les mecanismes les mieux etablis ne peuvent etre compris qu'en adoptant une perspective de longue duree. Les auteurs se sont efforces non seulement d'eclaircir la complexite de la personnalite des migrants (genre, age, education, religion, etc.), mais aussi de tenir compte des contextes varies des migrations (initiatives individuelles, strategies familiales, politiques migratoires, etc.). Ils invitent le lecteur a envisager l'histoire des migrations et la situation actuelle selon une perspective nouvelle et stimulante. Migrations have recently returned as a major challenge to the developed nation-states of the West, particularly in Europe. The dramatic increase of migratory flows is caused by a complex conjunction of push and pull factors - from labour market opportunities to forced migrations. However some migrations appear to be rooted in a remote past, and the most deep-seated mechanisms can only be understood by adopting a long-term perspective. The present contributors have not only tried to clarify the complexity of the migrant personality (gender, age, education, religion etc.), but also to take into account the various contexts of migrations (individual initiatives, family strategies, migration policies etc.). They invite us to consider the history of migrations and the present situation in a new and fresh perspective.
