1. German migration history and migration research
While the transmigrant in Pries/Portes’ conceptualization easily changes between places, and the return migrant rearrives (and mentally/emotionally really rearrives) at his old home, the failed transmigrant psychologically and emotionally lives in a no man’ s land, but is physically confined to/trapped in a geographical place.
