New migration regimes and modalities

The issues that attract by far the most attention in the migration of Chinese to Europe are illegal border crossings, human smuggling and asylum. In this regard, the current flows of Chinese mass migration to Europe are merely part of a much larger number of flows from countries of the developing world to countries of the developed world. At the most general level of analysis, macroprocesses of globalization and commercialization that increase people’s exposure to and familiarity with a modern lifestyle and Western culture also spur migration to Europe. With the inequalities of the world system being more visible than ever and the means of global communication and transport within reach of ever more people, the demand for migration has increased to levels unprecedented only 20 years ago. In this context, the nature of migration regimes and modalities become a major explanatory variable of the volume and direction of migratory flows, including those of Chinese.
