Countries with signiﬁcant minorities A country may have a signiﬁcant minority who are then denied autonomy, and who may choose to settle elsewhere – as in the case of Tamils in Sri Lanka. Those who wish to relocate will, inevitably, select somewhere prosperous, politically and socially stable, and tolerant of diversity. It is interesting to note that Tamils originated in India, but many do not choose to relocate there: instead they understandably choose somewhere more congenial to their interests.
At one end of the continuum is the honest intention where there is a formal application to the potential host country by the aspirant (assuming that such formal means are available). Next in line of intentionality is where aspirants to stay have developed that intention only after the experience of being in the host country – let us call this converted intention. Among such might be deserting seamen, aircrew and tourist overstayers. Next is the category of those who use legal means to enter the potential host country, but with the intention of staying, while pretending that their motives are otherwise.
This raises the question of whether or not migrants are a net beneﬁt or a net cost to the host community. The pros and cons of the beneﬁts and costs of migration into Australia have been considered by Carrington et al. (2007). Their main conclusion is that, on balance, migration has created, and continues to provide, signiﬁcant beneﬁts, at least economically. From time to time migration is blamed for the country’s economic ills. Inﬂation, for example, is sometimes attributed to an indigestibly high migration rate; proponents of that view fail to take into account the beneﬁts of immigration.
