Abstract

This chapter contends that the study of psychosocial wellbeing in the context of return migration uncovers essentialised assumptions on the effects of migration on people, as well as broader ideologies of power, home and belonging. It offers a critical review based on four interlinked themes: the role of context in the interface between return and psychosocial wellbeing; the reassessment of volition in the context of return; post-return mobilities and enabling citizenships; and the effects of age, gender and intersectionalities. The often negative outcomes for return migrants contrast with assumptions held at state level which inform migration policies and have a bearing on policy implications.
