MIGRATION Mankind has been moving from place to place since time began. Did this mobility give rise to the idiom “the grass is always greener on the other side of the hill”? Greener, referring to more than just better pastures. It has included the conquest for land, gold, labor, love and a better life.

What is Migration? Movement of people usually meaning a change of home Emigrants are people who leave a country Immigrants are people entering a country The migration balance is the difference between the number of emigrants and immigrants
Migration can be: Voluntary Forced (or involuntary) Permanent Semi – permanent (a couple of years perhaps) Temporary (seasonal or even daily)
Migration can also be From countryside to city (known as rural to urban) From city to countryside (known as urban to rural or counterurbanisation) Internal (within the same country) External (international)
Reasons why people migrate: Push Factors (reasons why a person or group of people will leave a particular location) Pull Factors (reasons why a person or a group of people will go to a particular location)
Mr. Cheatle’s Migration In July 2004 I migrated with my wife Mrs. Cheatle, (as I call her, because we are very formal and polite in our home), from the city of Sheffield England to Manila in the Philippines. I had lived in Sheffield from 1983 to 2004 (21 years) and my wife Claire (as I really call her) was born and raised in Sheffield and had never lived anywhere else before this migration took place. Sheffield was our source location or origin and Manila was our destination. This was an external migration because it was international. The migration is semi permanent because at the moment we intend to return to the UK. However it might be that things change and the move might become permanent. The reason for the migration was for employment. The job opportunity in the Philippines was attractive (pull factor) and I had had enough of teaching in the Sheffield school (push factor). The chance to go to a new place was also a pull factor.
Mr. Cheatle’s migration continued I migrated internally within the Philippines in 2006. From living in Cainta (Rizal) whilst I was at Faith Academy I moved to Makati City (Metro Manila) when I started work at ISM. I have migrated temporarily many times in my life for reasons of tourism or vacation. The best example is the temporary migration I undertake in the school vacation in June and July each year. I migrate back to my home country of the UK (a 7000 mile flight). I return to the Philippines after 7 weeks or so. This is not only a temporary migration but external as well. Fortunately I have not had to suffer through experiencing a forced migration like many others have in the Philippines. One such example was when Pinatubo volcano blew its top in 1991.
