In this chapter I explore some aspects of contemporary migration theory. I address these theories primarily through the different scales at which they operate through the global, to the strategies of the meso-scale and the insights of the micro-scale. I argue that the latter are most well developed in theories that reflect on the experiences of longer settled migrants. The paper concludes by outlining some lacunae in current theorisations and what future theorisations should ideally address.
