Semiconductor theory in migration: population receivers, homelands and gateways in Taiwan and Island Southeast Asia

Carson, Michael; Hung, Hsiao-Chun


People migrate to, from and through regions that may be defined alternately as receivers, homelands or gateways. We propose to consider all three of these components as a unit, in an analogy with semiconductors that could amplify, alter or covert the flow of migrations. We examine two migrations related to Taiwan, beginning with a flow from coastal south-east China to Taiwan by 4000 bc and then continuing with another migration from Taiwan into Island Southeast Asia by 2000 bc.
