Return migration, from theory to practice (In French)
AbstractThe aim of this paper is to analyze the theories of international return migration, we try to take the different approaches of return migration and to develop an empirically study on the main characteristics of return migration of the three countries of the Maghreb: Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. This is a micro-economic approach based on the original data recently published by the project « REturn MIgration to the Maghreb». The conceptual framework of returnees is reviewed using a data analysis, and taking into account a set of criteria. The application of multiple components analysis leads to the formation of a typology based on a set of variables. Profiles derived by the hierarchical ascending classification correspond to the characteristics of return migration from Maghreb to Europe.
