ILO (2020) warns there will be a significant loss in labor income in the range of USD 860 billion to USD 3.4 trillion. World Bank (2020) predicts that economic growth is expected to fall to a range between 1.5 % and 2.8 % in the fiscal year 2020 because of a reduction in the inflow of remittances. Many developing countries have been dependent on it as it contributes around 25 % to the national GDP. Many migrant workers will return home and chances of jobless will be increased. What will be its consequences on the national and international economy? What will be the alternates of it?
Relevant answer
Answer
Yes. For altruistic reasons.

Question

Most of the theories of migration are sociological, economic and geographical in nature though an unifying approach can also be made in doing research in the context of International Migration.The theories that have been developed so far are applied in International Migration. So can any theory/theories be applied for internal migration: more specifically seasonal migration?
Relevant answer
Answer
Seasonal migration may be internal or international, just as border migration). I think you can use circular migration theory which is quite relevant for both movements ( either internal or international).

Method of calculating intensity of Migration?
Relevant answer
Answer
It depends what you want to do and what data is available. . If you want to work mainly statistically then you might want to check, if migration is part of the questions asked in the census. Then you can calculate migration data from one to other censuses. In the end you have statistical data on how relevant statistically migration is, but you not necessarily know, what makes people migrate.
To learn about reasons, you better make interviews with migrants. These would be most likely immigrants, people who moved to the place where you conduct field work. This kind of research will be more qualitative in nature.

Question

For my Qualitative Research on the analysis and comparison of migrant women's career paths in the context of the Basque Country, I have interviewed an heterogeneous group of women and checked several different migratory experiences, I have also found heterogeneous trajectories. But I could identify some patterns and some typologies.
My question is:
Is correct speaking about "patterns" and "typologies" for a qualitative research? If not. Why I can't regroup similar work/migratory experiencies  and paths in typologies and patterns, even if they are not quantitatives and not statistically observed, consequently, they are not representative "typologies" and "patterns". 
Finally, how can/define I call these "typologies" and "patterns" in my qualitative analysis?
Thank you very much in advance for you help!
Marisa
Relevant answer
Answer
Typologies are characterized by categorization, but not by hierarchical arrangement; the categories in a typology are related to one another. Typological analysis is a strategy for descriptive qualitative (or quantitative) data analysis whose goal is the development of a set of related but distinct categories within a phenomenon that discriminate across the phenomenon. The typological  analysis has a predominantly heuristic character and is not based on complex statistic tools, being much different than those. As a working method, the typological analysis aims the similitude reports between objects and is used when there isn’t any a priori assumption and we are in the stage of  the exploratory analysis of research.

Hallo, I don't exactly know the time-span you are referring to, but just in case it works for you, you have the doctoral thesis of Salvador Pardo Gordò (here on researchgate), which explores the Neolithic expansion in the Western Mediterranean using an ABM. You can also check on Andy White's doctoral thesis, the 5th chapter of which explores mobility of American hunter-gatherers, also through an Agent Based Model. Several other types of modelling are provided by Edinborough, Crema, Boyd and Richerson, and many others, regarding different issues, but where you might find bibliography that suits your interest.

unlike other global policy such as trade,health etc which have multilateral institutions overseeing its affairs.Institutions such as the WTO ,WHO. International migration does not have such body ,why is this so and it is feasible and desirable to have such institution in International migration. 
Relevant answer
Answer
I am afraid that cases of global migrations as seen in Europe recently, being it from the war reasons (when it would be illegal not to grant asylum) or going to the economical immigration (when there is a margin of appreciation of each state whether to grant asylum or not) would have, in few generations, a global impact. Also, for example, some counties, Canada involved too, grant asylum to persons with higher education so they could meet Canadian requirements for labor market. This is what I find very troubling because I can imagine a global imbalance among the populations from developed and under-developed countries that would for sure lead to extending the gap between rich and poor and eventually bring to large scale social crises and emergent situations. 
Now, there is already International Organization for Migration (IOM), although not part of the UN system, so I believe their resources must be used to tackle issues of global migrations. I wouldn't overwhelm the international organization of such kind with an administrative machinery that is always connected to the UN, but perhaps some organization, even IOM, can get more political power to mitigate between states and emerging immigration to decrease the probability of dangers that I mentioned above.

I would like to offer you some valuable sources which definitely cover the challenges and issues you raised in your question. European space - multilevel constitutional nature of the European Union and other pan-European institutions really represent true and firmly authentic effective forums for the protection of contemporary human rights but the challenges especially bear in mind the very last developments in Europe refugee crisis, migration etc. shows that care and protection of human fundamentals are dynamic phenomenon and not static duty and obligation both national or supranational institutions.

I'm especially interested in studies that use administrative data directly recorded in the refugees' camps or centers in the receiving countries.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Mary.
First of all, thank you for your answer and your suggestions.
I have already found some of the papers you cite, but some other resources you suggest may be useful for my work. So, thanks!
Anyway, probably I must have been more clear in asking my question or provide more details.
What I'm searching for are studies which use administrative individual data from refugees' centers. So, not aggregate data from various statistical sources, and not data on refugees collected somehow after they left the centers or in another period of their lives.
I hope this further explanation will be useful to have additional suggestions from you and from other readers.
Thanks again for your help.
Best regards.

In fact in most cases, and although on a different scale, the reasons why people migrate and the consequences of such movments, are the same regardless from the spatial context where the movment occur
Relevant answer
Answer
There is a fundamental difference between internal and external migration; but before considering this question, we need to face up to the current context within which this question has to be approached, which is the massive external migration into European-created countries from non-European lands. Internal migration within the EU by Europeans can be problem if the historical diversity of particular European nations is thereby undermined, but what is really threatening to Europe is the external arrival of hordes of migrants from Africa, Near East, and Asian. 
Academics have uncritically accepted the notion that immigration is "cultural enriching" and our current establishment, both the corporate and leftist establishment, barely allow for any critical reflection on this central issue of our times. Also, it cannot be denied that academics are afraid to go against the grain, although they like to pretend they are edgy and rebellious, but basically they agree with mass immigration and diversity, even though most of the evidence is showing that Europe does not benefit from Islamic, African immigration. Just Google "systematic raping of white girls in Britain," or  in Sweden, or in Norway, or Google about the expensive welfare costs of maintaining an African-Muslim underclass in Europe.

Helena
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear @Helena, your country is at the south west of the European continent, so You did not have a chance yet to see this exodus. My country is on most of their routes to EU. They enter from Greece over Macedonia, Bulgaria..., and they get all possible help here. After few days, they are going to the border of Hungary!!! 13 meter high fence on the border! 
My country is not the member of EU, but we get the immigrants from EU countries (Greece, Bulgaria) and EU prevent immigrants to enter EU (Hungary)! This is very serious situation as winter is so close.
Short term care should be due to their survival during coming winter.
Long term solution is, as @Dejenie has stated, to solve the basic problems in their countries of origin and their integration in society without borders (is it EU)! It is a long term process. Here we do have large-scale migration of peoples!

I am testing for the relationship between growth and migration. What is the best theory to use? Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Eloho, as you probabaly are aware the concept of development in the last 50 years has moved from a narrow growth apprach (i.e. national accounts indicators GDP/GNP) to a more open approach were development is seen as a process to enlarge people's choices. Maybe it is worthwhile if you also consider these views before determing how to test the impact of migration on economic growrh. Having said that I concurr that one economic indicator could be the study of the remittance. several studies have already be carried out on that and they are easyly available on the web. PS On the evolution of the concept of deveopment I reccommend you to read Sant'Ana M, (2008) The evolution of the concept of development from economic growth to human development, IAP VI /06 Democratic Governance and Theory of Collective Action.

I plan to research into mental health of migrants in a developed country. I am looking to explore the impact of the migration process- from pre migration to settlement phase and how their experiences- usually stressful, might contribute to psychological breakdown. Are there any programmes in the recieveing countries targetted at making the process less traumatic? I am interested in both forced migration and economic/professional migration.
Relevant answer
Answer
It is still an under-researched area, absolutely no question; our experience was that it was more commonly an aspect of studies looking at larger issues of health or social care and much less solely on mental health. That said, there are some good starting points here on RG, you can pursue further into their citations tabs for additional materials. Sadly still not a lot, and well scattered over the last 10-15 years.

Is there a country that links (today or in the past) its immigration, naturalization or citizenship policy to a certain religious affiliation?
In Israel this connection is obvious, so I wonder whether there are any parallels.

Netanel Fisher
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Netanel,
This is an interesting question, but yet again that depends if you  are referring to the written or the unwritten law.
For instance, those countries which offer citizenship for refugees - ie Ireland, Australia etc - can provide you with citizenship if you state that the country which you were living discriminates your religion.
There is also another view on this, some countries may not simply provide you with citizenship whether by naturalization or marriage if you are following one of their stated or official religions (ie Christianity, Islam, Judaism). This is typical in South East Asia and the Middle East.

Migration has rapidly gained momentum in European Union external policy. Aid programmes have been driven primarily to strengthen management patterns and boost the effects of migration on development. However, we know that this nexus is more a cultural and political construction than a well established link.
Relevant answer
Answer
In the latest developments of the migration-development debate, European actors have been increasingly concerned with 'return migration'. Whilst it is evident how this is linked to aspirations of migration management, there is a general dearth of evidence that return indeed does promote development (and of what kind) in sending countries.

Which accent is deemed more favourable? Why?
Relevant answer
Answer
From my observations working in major public sector organisations, The closer the accents are to the host environment - people are perceived to have 'made the effort to integrate' and are perceived more favourably than other people with 'difficult to understand' accents are often perceived as not being 'able to speak English very well', have not made enough effort to integrate or make themselves understood.
When I am delivering training on Intergroup Relations - looking at the impact of Equality legislation on the behaviour of those in the majority and those in the minority. One of the major changes legislation gives - is that it give the minority an equality of opportunity of having the power to speak, challenge and make their needs know.
This is often difficult for those in the historical majority to come to terms with this new use of power and there can be resistance, resentment and a feeling that the minorities are now being advantages. Some minorities will often use this power to determine what terms they will or will not tolerate - that can be the words used in banter in the workplace.
In a paper published with a colleague - we described the culture of the organisation, or community as' the default position' - it it s the unspoken, expected way things are done - the way the language is spoken - the unconscious expectations of the pitch, tone, gaps, pauses. It is this unconscious bias that often inform how we perceive accents or voices or actions. These are a reflection of the language conventions that we all learn and adjust to as we travel or encounter others. We learn to adjust and make allowances for certain conventions that are broken. Sometime we have key conventions which, when they are broken, may irritate or annoy us and we make judgements of competence and skill.
