This book studies the return, remigration, and circular migration of Albanian citizens towards Italy and Greece in the 2010s. It develops a new analytical framework for making sense of return, remigration, and circular mobility by conceptualizing them as different phases of a wider migration process. We argue that while interesting as a unique regional migration system, the case of Albania, Italy, and Greece can cast light on important migration and mobility dynamics that are relevant more broadly for understanding labour migration dynamics between the EU and its neighbourhood. This introductory chapter briefly places the book in the wider scholarly literature framework and explains why studying the migration between Albania, Italy and Greece offers an interesting case study. The chapter concludes by outlining the book’s structure and contents.
