This paper examines the impact of informational cascades (herd behaviour) and networks in influencing migrants' location choices. It argues that herd behaviour and networks complement each other in explaining foreign location decisions. The paper develops both theories, emphasising the differences and the similarities between them. Empirical evidence shows that both herd behaviour and network externalities are important components in the decision-making of migrants.
