    Abstract

    There has been much criticism of studies of migration as time specific event, but few attempts to provide alternative schemas for interpreting the migration process. The paper seeks therefore to make a methodological contribution by outlining a socio-temporal framework for migration analysis. The value of the schema is illustrated using biographical research amongst migrants in and to rural Scotland
