Conclusions: Current and Future Perspectives on Return Migration and Regional Development in Europe
This final chapter brings together the theoretical debates, methodological discussions and empirical results portrayed in this book. The aim of the book was to provide a comprehensive understanding of the current state of research on return migration and its nexus with regional development in Europe. This volume tells a story which to date has been poorly told, because return migration is studied mainly from the position of return from Europe to other continents. Furthermore, it enriches the knowledge on specific links between migration and development by reporting on the specific role of returning migrants, broadening the classic focus on financial remittances.
