Push and Pull

Push and Pull | Barriers to Migration - FireCloud | Scoop.it

While barriers produce a challenge to mobility and migration. Push and pull factors aare the actual factors responsible for migration. A push factor is something pushing you out of said area, where a pull factor is something pulling you into said area. Common push factors include: bad health care, political problems, poverty and basically low living conditions. A pull factor could be: better healthcare, moving family, safer area and etc. The main reason people migrate is due to unsatisfactory conditions at home (Push) and the promise of better conditions in said place (Pull). To make this change, people are willing to overcome the barriers to migration, be it emotional, physical, legal, political or financial.

Walls as a physical barrier

Walls as a physical barrier | Barriers to Migration - FireCloud | Scoop.it

Here we have an example of a man made physical barrier. The great walls of China, probably the most renowned barrier, was built with the intention of keeping out the pillaging hords of enemies from... Well pillaging China. Some physical barriers are made with the intention of keeping people out/in, while others are created as unforseen side effects. For example, mass deforestation and global warming have created a process called desertification, in which previously life sustaining lakes and forests have now become barren wastelands.

Emotional Relief and Emotional barriers

Emotional Relief and Emotional barriers | Barriers to Migration - FireCloud | Scoop.it

Having to leave a group of friends or people you've grown up around can be quite traumatic. This is considered another kind of barrier to immigration. The emotional barrier. Exactly what it's name suggests, emotional barriers of not having friends in a new place can be quite a push factor AWAY from immigrating. This barrier reduces mobility by reducing a person's will of moving.

Political barriers

Political barriers | Barriers to Migration - FireCloud | Scoop.it

Certain barriers to migration can also arise politically. The most direct example is an emmigration/immigration ban. With such bans in place the possibility of immigrating or emmigrating from/to said country legally becomes almost impossible. And as one can imagine, having to hide from officials and cities can cause alot of other barriers, such as financial barriers for supplies, physical barriers like having to cross bodies of water, and even legal barriers in case you were to be caught.

Physical Barriers

Physical Barriers | Barriers to Migration - FireCloud | Scoop.it

The most basic barrier to migration is the physical barrier. In this example, Cuba is an island country, hundres of ilegal immigrants die in an attempt to cross across the gulf to the States. Not all physical barriers are bodies of water or even natural. Mountains can greatly reduce the effective mobility of vehicles and few animals are suited to mountain travel. Deserts with their lack of water forces travelers to carry their own supply, hence slowing their travel rate. Usually with legal immigration, physical barriers are easily overcome with the ability of aircrafts, ships and various types of transportation. However to legally immigrate, financial, legal and political barriers have to be taken into consideration. Also some physical barriers can be man-made, examples include walls, fences, artifical deserts, canals and etc. Usually these barriers are specifically made with the intentions of keeping someone in or out.

Financial barriers travel and transportation

Financial barriers, which are problems and barriers to migration arising from one's lack of money or wealth, is a major barrier both to legal and ilegal migration. An example is the cost of tickets aboard transportation devices such as airplanes. Without the plane, the mobility of the traveling person/familty would be greatly reduce, say perhaps from 6 hours to 6 days trying to brave whatever physical barriers barred their way. Some other financial barriers include: supplies such as food for a trip, and money needed for transportation itself.
