dc.description.abstractMigration has always been a fundamental component of human history. During last decades several researchers have derived models for predicting mass migrations. This paper critically reviews the theories and models - qualitative structural and mathematical modelling of migration. It analyses the institutional causes of migration at the origin and the impacts of migration on destination. Migration as a consequence of climate change is also considered and modelled. Comparisons of different modelling processes provide a better understanding of migration modelling itself and the subsequent synthesis of models and variables show the differences and complementarities. The critical analysis conducted will greatly facilitate development of new more comprehensive models for migration in the future.
