Abstract

The paper deals with the international circular migration which has globally become a buzzword in scientific, political, and administrative circles since the new century. The article concentrates on an unknown feature of the circular migration, namely its dialectic nature, which encompasses both event and system characteristics. This would be the common root of false ideas surrounding human circulation. The literature echoes wide variety of conceptualisations of international circular migration. However, the investigation and application of double characteristic is absent. On one hand, circular migration is a type of migration as a simple event, on the other hand that is a repeat process or a complete system. The main aim of the article is to discuss the event-system dilemma in general and to provide a sort of practical solution with empirical evidence that comes from Hungary in particular. Moreover, the authors contribute to the clarification of the general concept of human circular mobilities.
