Abstract

Migration is a shared topic within social sciences attracting interest from members of all sub-disciplines. This attention reflects both the importance of the flows and the complexity of the behaviour. This article presents a short overview of the basic theoretical perspectives on individual migration decision making, and it considers empirical challenges to bringing these models to the data.
