Two major difficulties stand out. First, the difference between intention and result: migrants may have the intention to leave for good, but for all kinds of reasons return after shorter or longer periods. The opposite is also true; some move multiple times and finally return after decades (Brettell, 1986; Cinel, 1991; Morawska, 1991; Wyman, 1993, 2001; Reeder, 2003; Alexander, 2005). 6 A good example of the often considerable disparity between intention and result is that of migrants who moved within colonial circuits, such as the Dutch or English empires (Bosma, 2007a, 2007b; Feldman, 2007; Harper and Constantine, 2010; Bickers, 2010), but also informal empires such as the American since the late nineteenth and the Japanese empire in the first half of the twentieth century (Gabaccia, 2012; Young, 1998; Uchida, 2011; see also Lucassen, Osamu and Shimada, 2014).
Such assumptions are in line with the nation state paradigm that assumes a fixed membership and views migration as an exemption to the sedentary rule. 4 The often implicit assumption seems to be that migration, in contrast to mobility, has a much larger cultural impact on both the migrants and the societies in which they settle, leading to conflicts, integration problems, or, more positively, to social and cultural change. g. Crul and Mollenkopf, 2012). Germans in the Netherlands or French in the United Kingdom in our current era are normally not considered as “real” migrants, because their culture is assumed to be more or less similar to that of the natives.
After the oil crisis and the ensuing “family reunification”, guest workers themselves fell victim to unemployment in large numbers Cross-cultural migrations in Europe since 1500 31 and relations deteriorated. This had a negative impact on the willingness and possibility of both first and second generation migrants to integrate into Western European societies. The “integration pessimism” that subsequently has gained popularity in Europe received an extra stimulus over the past decade, which has led, it seems, to the outright rejection of “Western values” by some of the second or even third generation youngsters.
