Paper long abstract:

the paper will delve into a systematic analysis on the interplay between the return migrations and homecomings. It will begin with presentation of the wider context of the discussed phenomena, i.e., that of globalization and how this process augments frequent transfers between numerous localities, and the development of transnational spaces. This will be followed by recollection of the noticed forms of return migrations; the issue of the return migrations' registration will also be addressed. The paper will focus on the selection of criteria that would allow to distinguish between the two entangled phenomena. The paper will be based on available empirical data and research on return migration.
