  INEQUALITY, INSECURITY AND MIGRATION JEFFREY H COHEN, THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY IBRAHIM SIRKECI, REGENT'S UNIVERSITY, LONDON, UK)   Four assumptions:  Many decisions influence mobility and outcomes are often predicated on the influence of others including non-movers.  Outcomes cannot be guaranteed.  The decision to move can be impulsive and unpredictable.  Discussions of migration are often functional and focused on mobility as an adaptive response to problems.  Mobility need not be adaptive.  Inequalities and insecurities drive migration, influence decision making and effect outcomes. EXPLAINING MIGRATION   Migration and inequalities confront movers as part of an environment of human insecurity.  Inequalities in sending and destination communities can destabilize everyday life and encourage mobility.  Some inequalities can be objectively measured.  Inequalities are organized along a series of possible outcomes.  Some inequalities are accepted and part of everyday life while others are resisted and become points of contest.  Inequalities reproduce shared local traditions; others are globally defined and create insecurities that both confront and promote mobility for movers, non-movers and potential movers. INEQUALITIES, INSECURITY AND MIGRATION   Oaxaqueño migration and sending communities  Kurdish migration and destination communities EXAMPLES   Local inequalities confront movers and non-movers and include age, gender, education, family status and the like. Described as “part of everyday life” on the surface, challenge daily practice. These are the inequalities that define who we are and how we relate to others.  Spatial, environmental and geographic inequalities influence mobility, decision making and outcomes and include access to transportation, education, healthcare and opportunities.  Global inequalities are historical and develop over time. Expressed as health and economic differences that are not a result of historical patterns of interaction but are instead a sign of natural differences in populations. ORGANIZING INEQUALITIES
