The distinction between what is defined as international or internal migration depends on the (in)stability of the borders that surround and encapsulate nation-states. Simplistically, the former operates on the basis of individuals moving between one nation-state and another while the latter represents movement within the borders of one nation-state. The aim of this working paper is to contribute to the limited amount of literature on the “forgotten migrants”: those that migrate internally within the borders of their own country or nation-state (Laczko, 2008).
