Issues of migration and mobility have for decades been on the public and political agenda, informed international relations and global connections, and resulted in enforced borders and extended transnational communities across the world. Political instability and war, environmental catastrophes, expanding religious congregations, family networks, tourism and pilgrimage, aspirations for a prosperous life or career opportunities in other parts of the world continue to make people move and migrate.
