Circular Migration between Europe and its Neighbourhood

The term circular migration has become a buzzword among European and international policy and academic circles since 2007 when the European Commission issued a Communication on “Mobility Partnerships and Circular Migration” that highlighted the advantages and challenges of this type of migration and put forward specific policy ideas on how to implement it. Many national and EU policy makers have heralded the idea of ‘circular’ migration with great enthusiasm as the solution to many of ‘our’ migration ‘problems’. Despite this recent interest in circular migration by policy makers and to a certain extent by scholars too, little is known about the realities of circularity migration on the ground in Europe and between European and neighbouring countries. This book aims to contribute towards filling this gap by specifically concentrating on circular migration between EU member states and the region surrounding the EU. This introductory chapter discusses the origins of the term ‘circular migration’, provides for a working definition, and sketches a provisional typology of circularity. Last but not least the chapter outlines the contents of the book.

Keywords:   Circular migration, irregular migration, seasonal migration, labour market, EU policy
