Abstract

The current chapter presents a typology of forced migration of groups in the geopolitical sphere of the East Roman Empire in the period between 600 and 1204. To a large extent, mobility of people within or from outside-in the territories controlled by the Roman emperor of Constantinople was a consequence of war or state coercion. The former usually went along with an extensive rearrangement of boundaries of imperial authority as well as with the depopulation of regions within the imperial state, which were affected by enemy raids. The latter concerns the ways with which a medieval imperial state sought to make up for demographic losses and renew its basis of a reducing and taxpaying subject population.
