Migration : Types and AdvantagesBY: David Prakash Kumar | Category: Politics | Post Date: 2009-06-22
Migration is the movement of people from one place to another. There are various reasons for people to migrate. Migration can be from one country to another. It can also be from one place in a country to another place within the same country. This kind of movement of people on a large scale has its own effects. These may be either good or detrimental.
This article considers the impact of migration on the individual who is migrating. Migration is common among all groups of people in all socio economic groups. The highest number of migrants, though, is in people of the lower socio - economic groups. The reason for this is not very difficult to understand. These people are migrating to seek a better socio economic status.
Types of migration and their advantages:
1. Economic Migration: The migrant may be able to earn more money in the place where they are migrating. This is the most common cause of migration. People migrate in search of better work prospects. This will help them earn more and support their family that may have migrated with them. In some situations, only the breadwinner of the family migrates, leaving all the others behind.
2. Political migration : If the individual is escaping from a war zone, then that is for saving themselves and to have a safe life. This has been seen in the recent wars around the world. Each war causes an increased migration from the conflict zone to other areas nearby that are peaceful.
3. Social Migration: Migrants can also be moving because some of the family has already migrated. These people may be migrating to join them. This happens on a smaller scale and is quite insignificant.
4. Migrants may also have a better health care facility in the place that they are migrating to. This will help them lead a healthier life.
5. To provide better education for children could also be a reason for migration. This is the kind of migration that occurs in people of higher socio economic status. All the other causes of migrations were mainly in the lower socio economic groups.
6. Environmental migration : This is the migration that occurs after natural disasters that may include floods, droughts, earthquakes. A recent example of this kind of migration was seen in the aftermath of the tsunami. Thousands of people living on the seacoast moved to places inland to save themselves from the unpredictability of nature.
These are the various types of migrations seen and their reasons. These factors pull people from a place they know to a new unfamiliar place. With modern transportation and communication facilities, more and more people are migrating.
