In this lesson we defined the fairly ubiquitous terms of mobility and migration within the context of human geographical research. We discussed the potential motivations for migration, but also the fact that migration is a system that incorporates a variety of different factors including macro-structural factors, as well as intervening barriers and conduits. While realizing that the majority of migrants do not have nefarious intentions, we examine potential security issues that may arise around internal and international migration, as well as potential policy implications.
