Cover Page of article: People, borders, trajectories: an approach to cross-border mobility and immobility in and to the European Union JournalArea: (2011), 43.2 & 218–224) Author: Martin van der Velde and Ton van Naerssen Date: 12 August 2010 Place: Nijmegen Centre for Border Research, Human Geography, Nijmegen School of Management, Radboud University The emergence of the cross-border movement has enthralled the intervention of scholars, policy makers and the public opinion globally where the European Union (EU) plays a predominant role. In the European Union, the debate is bifurcated into major domains, the first being associated with the self enlargement process of the EU with the issue of the east-west intra-EU migration post accession rounds of 2004 and 2007.
Some views state that the there is demand for the migrant labor due to the graying of the population. Some views also opine for the debarring of the worker flow from the foreign states which enhances the competition. The second domain circumscribes the progress from different countries like sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East infiltrating into the European culture and the views are against the mobility particularly from the Islamic countries although the nature of variation changes from country to country.
Both the domain of discussion targets at the restriction mechanism of migration. However the discussion generates the significance of the regulation of immigration. An emergence of the cross border immobility is taken as the starting phase and it has been found that people remains immobile with respect to certain destinations and the preference of destinations among the people play a significant part in the mobility (Velde & Naerssen, 2000, pp. 218-219). Argument The argument stands on the premises of examining whether the borders generates incentives for the migrants to relocate.
In other words, the argument presupposes on the decision making aspects of the people in the migration procedure in association with the prime parameter being the border in this case (Velde & Naerssen, 2000, p. 219). Structure of the paper The decision making process of cross border mobility of the migrants incorporates into it the very notion of underlying uncertainty, instability as well as the precariousness affecting their mobility behavior. In order to examine the basis of the argument three components distinguishing the international migration are explained with respect to the argument in question and that is people, borders and trajectories.
