(2016)BORDER CROSSING.6.p.305-324 Mark abstract The aim of this research is to reflect the social imaginaries of highly educated Turkish migrants on theirmigration to their parents’ home country. Based on fieldwork and interviews with 19 Turkish-originBelgian and Dutch citizens in a post-migration setting, this study demonstrates their pre- and postmigrationlifestyles, and propounds the way they attribute meaning to their movement. The gap betweenpersonal wills of the actors of migration and expectations of them clearly shows how policies are flawedin their considerations of socio-cultural and economic development through ‘development agents’.
