Résumé:   [en] Are migrants ‘special individuals’? With the world migrant population expanding, ‘inter-national mobility’ has been highlighted as a significant cleavage that cuts across societies and cohorts, possibly shaping emerging inequalities and socio-cultural differences. Existing migration theory can, at best, account for the direction and (rough) size of population flows in aggregate terms, but it remains almost blind to the profile of who is going to move and who is, in fact, more likely to stay put in sending communities. Grabowska’s book addresses the issue openly with reference to the single largest nationality of mi-grants within Europe – Poles. She relies on a multi-plicity of quantitative and qualitative sources, navigating through data collected between 1996 and 2012. But first of all it grounds data analysis in a pre-eminent theoretical preoccupation: what makes some people move and others not?
