In the twenty-first century, the ability to migrate to some country other than one's own, and to enjoy in that country legal status akin to that of a citizen, is a global marker of privilege. Such freedom is accorded only to a small class of people. For Bauman (1998, 9), international mobility is now the worldâ€™s â€˜most powerful and most coveted stratifying factorâ€™ (as cited in Castles 2005, 217).
