which the concepts of location-specific capital and information costs figure importantly. Using this framework, hypotheses about repeat migration are then derived. paper focuses on repeat moves and inquires into how previous migrants choose among moving on to a new location, returning to a previous location, and staying put. To explain this choice, we broaden the human capital model of migration to incorporate the con-cepts of location-specific capital and information costs.   The current paper attempts to develop a human capital model of migration which is adaptable to empirical analysis by using the concept of location-specific human capital. A family's endowment of location-sf-tcifc human capital includes the concrete assets and other features slwxi5-c to a.L pin ~'t~: vov::iv s~ w family's production capacity. The idea of location-specific capital (see DaVanzo, ) is a central element to geographical mobility, where it is assumed that workers move from declining areas to areas that provide more opportunities for employment (Arntz, ). This could make them more vulnerable to .

Rational migrants optimise utility at each migration stage, under income constraints and both monetary and psychological moving costs (Constant et al., ).

Later work has argued that psychological and information costs are likely to fall when there is greater access to family, friends, and other previous migrants in the destination. Using theories of social inequality and migration, we combine the research strands dealing with study-related international mobility and with migration-related inequalities in higher education. Based.
