Abstract: 

Migration as an example of place and space consumption has increasingly turned into a strategy for filling up life chances among the youth and particularly among the young elites. By opting for migration young people promote their cultural and human capital and preserve their distinction.
Drawing on qualitative interviews of 35 young elites studying in major Tehran universities and influenced by the theory of reflexive modernity, the present paper aims to clarify meanings, interpretations and importance of migration behavior seen in youth identity and lifestyles. The findings strongly support the impact of globalization process and cosmopolitan values on this group.
Similarly, on a personal level, tendencies to maintain personal lifestyles and to promote professional and educational skills are among the major motives explaining migration.
