  • Lee’s push pull migration model How does this apply to someone in the UK thinking of retiring in The Algarve? Push: Intervening obstacles: Pull : Turn to p132
  • Lee’s push-pull migration theory • Lee drew up a model which examined the factors causing migration in terms of positive and negative characteristics of the origin and destination areas. • Other Intervening Obstacles were identified as well (e.g. government policies, costs and language barriers) • E.g. UK migrant to Spain; – Push factors: expensive housing, anti-social behaviour. – Pull Factors: Weather, ex-pat community.
  • 1. Historic Trends of Migration to Europe (p132) • Watch this clip (6.28) from and write down how the British Empire effected migration patterns into Europe. • Where else have migrants come from? • Make notes on 2 more migrations
  • 2. Current Trends of migration • 2011 Census showed that – 13% now of the UK’s population was born outside the UK. – Four out of every 10 people in London in 2011 were foreign-born - up from three in 10 in 2001. • More here
  • 2. Current Trends of migration A. Illegal immigrants – Illegal immigration into Europe is focused on the ‘porous southern border’. Migrants travel from all over North Africa to reach the Mediterranean coast. – The migrants pay illegal traffickers 1,000-4,000 euros each. – Many die whilst crossing the Sahara. – The Canaries, Malta, Ceuta and Melilla are key illegal entry points. – Much of the migration from Africa is ‘pushed’ by conflict and poverty and ‘pulled’ by Europe’s wealth
