Abstract: In the course of reviewing social and economic theories of migration, this article constructs an analytical approach that allows a comprehensive look at contemporary processes of migration. It discusses the main theories of migration: the origin of the migration process in the economic theories and the characteristics of migration continuity in the social ones. In analyzing the sociological conception of migration, the main aspects of analyzing processes of integrating the migrants are discussed in the context of the continuity of international migration. The article offers an analytical approach allowing the joining together of distinct factors explaining the origin and continuity of migration: in a synthesis of migration theories the process of migration is treated both as an unavoidable social phenomenon of modern 21st century society and as an economic phenomenon determined by macroeconomic conditions. A description of migration theories helps to reveal peculiarities of the interaction between the concepts of migration and migrants’ integration: the latter is understood as a phenomenon “accompanying” the migration process and connected with macro, mezo, and micro factors influencing it. The article ends by presenting conclusions about the need to analyze migration processes in a comprehensive manner, applying a general schema of factors that explain the origin and continuity of migration, a schema encompassing the principal aspects of migration analysis: its structure, the network and action of migration in their macro, mezo, and microrelationships.
