    In this essay, the authors argue that although “South” and “North” are more and more becoming problematic categories in the social sciences, in general, and in migration studies, in particular, it still makes sense today to focus on SouthSouth migrations. Not only because of its mere quantitative importance, but for a number of reasons. Firstly, new SouthSouth migration patterns are observable and new data are becoming available. Secondly, SouthSouth migrations still have a number of distinct features, including: the role of borders, the composition of migration flows, the migrationconflict nexus, regional migration governance, and the specific relationships with certain migrationrelated concepts and variables.
