PurposeThe objective of the paper is to explain the motives for and against accelerated displacement of people from some countries to others. The evolving consequences of such shifts are highlighted. Design/methodology/approachIn a soft-system analysis, the paper cites specialists in mass migration and the various attitudes inherent in different nations' experience, economic policy, and culture. FindingsThe study finds that migration has increased in absolute, yet not in relative numbers. It explains the reasons for this. Originality/valueThe thrust of this paper gives a markedly different interpretation of the nature of the world's migratory movements today as opposed to the view prevailing until late in the twentieth century.
