This chapter develops the conceptual argument of the book. It argues that migration from the new EU member states is above all characterised by new mobility patterns which are indicative of a broader trend across Europe. New mobilities are facilitated by the EU free movement regime and new travel opportunities. As European migrants are no longer dependent upon a work permit, the ‘boundaryless career’ in which employment is no longer confined to a single firm, occupation or indeed nation-state becomes a distinct possibility. While work and employment remain crucial for this cross-border mobility, the move abroad is increasingly inspired by lifestyle choices as well.

Keywords:   boundaryless career, employment, free movement, lifestyle choices, migration, new mobilities
