This chapter presents an interpretation of Sir John Hicks' approach to the main cause of migration. The theoretical and contextual starting point in his analysis is based on the traditional microeconomic theory. The discussion also studies other competing explanations, and shows that a critical view of the classical economy-driven explanations to migration can provide a wider understanding of key migration patterns. It is also able to provide some insights into the factors that can hinder or facilitate migration. The chapter aims to address the question of the differential impact that national welfare and labour-market policies might directly or indirectly have on migration.

Keywords:   Sir John Hicks, cause of migration, traditional microeconomic theory, economy-driven explanations, key migration patterns, labour-market policies, labour migration, labour-market integration
