What drives rural migration: Determinants constraints and migrant characteristics

As indicated in Chapter 1, migration within and between territories, regions and continents has always been an important factor in the transformation of human societies from agriculture-dominated communities towards more industrialized economies and urbanized societies. Historically, the development of agricultural technologies allowed for a gradual release of human resources. Attracted by the growth of manufacturing and services, mostly located in urban areas, large numbers of people have chosen to migrate in search of new opportunities. This continuous process of rural–urban migration has been one of the factors fuelling economic development.
