Abstract

While studies of migration drivers and scholarship on inequality often highlight structural, economic and political factors in determining individual choices and individual migrants’ integration capacities, this panel takes a bottom-up perspective. Papers focus on the individual level to explain the reasons of why people migrate, of why they prefer certain destinations over others, and how and why certain migrants mobilize more than others. By analyzing migration drivers and sources of inequality from a migrants’ perspective and focusing on a large variety of countries, this panel contributes to scholarship on the agency of individual migrants.
