There are many ways of approaching the phenomena of migration and social and cultural mobility. Castles and Miller observe that, “forms of migrations are more and more diversified.” Urry argues that, “sociology should concentrate on different kinds of mobilities and not on society.”

Hoersting and Jenkins introduced the concept of cultural homelessness. They use this to describe the experience of persons, who have lived in multiple cultural frameworks before the age of 14.
