Abstract

Settled migrants’ influencing others to follow is considered to be an important explanation for sustaining migration. Migrants’ role in stagnating migration dynamics is however relatively underresearched. Migration from Ukraine to the United Kingdom and the Netherlands introduces valuable insights: while a relatively sizeable number of migrants have arrived in those destinations in the early 20th century, this migration has not developed into self-sustaining flows. We argue that the relations between settled and newcoming migrants—bearing the legacy of a 40-year generation gap—led to an ambivalent welcome of new arrivals and a lack of responsiveness of the diasporic institutions toward newcomers.
