Roots migration

Roots migration pertains to migration processes shaped by the desire to move to an ancestral homeland. It refers to migrants who are descendants of migrants and wish to relocate to an “original country”, not necessarily their country of birth. Research in this category includes studies on diasporas, (mythical) homeland, return migration, identity and belonging, language heritage, second and third generations, transnationalism and traditions.
