If we decide to assume the impossible task of summarizing the complex, contradictory, and diverse Balkan migrations at the beginning of the 21st century, it would be normalization. This movement takes a variety of forms; 24 scholars from 9 countries delineate the main trends: from forced migration to returns; from ethnic to economic logic; from mass emigration to circular migration; from countries of emigration to countries of immigration. Migration equals mobility. The day when pull factors reach the strength of push factors the citizens of the region will celebrate the end of 'balkanization' and will welcome a new image of an attractive and hospitable region. This day is not tomorrow, but it is in the foreseeable future. The 'roads' became more attractive than the 'roots', millions of emigrants have divested the region of significance. Returnees, circular migrants who earn abroad and spend at home, and immigrants 're-territorialize' countries previously characterized by mass emigration, investing existential value. 19 articles about migration to and from the region draw the figure of the Balkan migrant — and take you on an exciting journey to known and unknown tracks of humanity.
