The arrival of migrants to non-metropolitan gateways with little experience of immigration has, for many places, reversed patterns of emigration, economic stagnancy and demographic decline. It has challenged popular preconceptions of non-urban space as being socially backward and static. Many different types of migrants including refugees and economic migrants settle in emerging destinations and face a number of challenges as they find their way in a new place. A constellation of social relations is evident as they interact with a range of individuals in the workplace, in their community and in their neighbourhoods. This chapter explores those emerging, kaleidoscopic relations and shows how migrants’ lives are constantly shifting demanding them to continually negotiate their role in a new society. I start by elaborating on key features of emerging destinations, before moving on to consider the complex relations that evolve in these places, viewing those relations from a macro, meso and micro level perspectives
