Migration in a new Europe: people, borders and tajectories. edition:1st edition pages:87-110
The objective of the contribution is to analyse and understand current migration from China to Belgium. Undobtedly migration is a phenomenon of all times and the Chinese belong to one of the most longstanding diaspora. Yet the current migration differs from the previous ones in terms of scope and nature. Migration can no longer be viewed as a simply linear trajectory consisting of a sending and a receiving country. It is more apt to imagine migration as a complex confluence of institutions and processes, facilitating migration in the countries of origin, transit and destination.
