Internal and International migration


This theme is concerned with the analysis of human spatial mobility at a variety of temporal and spatial scales. Research under this theme draws on a wide range of analytical tools to explore how the intensity, spatial patterns and drivers of migration vary across space and time and develops innovative methods for migration analysis. Research under this theme is fundamentally concerned with understanding interactions between different types of mobility across the continuum of space and time: from local residential moves to international migration and from temporary to permanent migration.
