The term `circulatory transnational migration' best describes the unconventional migratory route of many contemporary Chinese migrants - that is an unfinished set of circulatory movements that these migrants engage in between the homeland and various host countries. `Return migration', `step migration' to a third destination and the `astronauting' strategy are all included within this circulatory migration movement wherein `returning' to the country of origin does not always mean to settle back to the homeland permanently; while `step migration' also does not necessarily mean to re-migrate to a third destination country for a permanent purpose.

Liu takes a longitudinal perspective to study Chinese migrants' transnational movements and looks at their transnational migratory movements as a family matter and progressive and dynamic process, using New Zealand as a primary case study. She examines Chinese migrants' initial motives for immigrating to New Zealand; the driving forces behind their adoption of a transnational lifestyle which includes leaving New Zealand to return to China, moving to a third country - typically Australia - or commuting across borders; family-related considerations; inter-generational dynamics in transnational migration; as well as their future movement intentions. Liu also discusses Chinese migrants' conceptualisation of `home', citizenship, identity, and sense of belonging to provide a deeper understanding of their transnational migratory experiences.
