TOWARDS THE SOCIOLOGY OF MOBILE SOCIETY? THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW CONCEPTS OF MIGRATION AND INTEGRATION AND SOCIOLOGY
Languages of publication
This article presents a review and analysis of the new sociological theories of migration and integration that have developed since the 1990s, including transnationalism, liquid migration and incomplete migration, as well as new concepts of multiculturalism, assimilation, integration and adaptation to transnational spaces. The paper postulates and justifies the need for better integration of migration studies with more general sociological theory. On the one hand, migration studies should be more embedded in general sociological theory. On the other hand, the achievements of migration studies should be employed by sociologists to a greater degree. This seems to be particularly advisable in the context of the emergence of the new metaparadigm of mobility, as opposed to settlement. As a result, the role of migration as a key research problem and theories pertaining to an emerging mobile society is increasing.
