In recent years, lifestyle migration – or residential tourism – has emerged as an increasingly popular form of mobility, usually in relation to affluent citizens who have decided to move within or outside their country of origin in search of better quality of life. This special issue thus envisages exploring themes related to this social phenomenon, particularly in rural landscapes. While lifestyle migration has usually been studied in terms of retirement migration, particularly migration flows from Northern European citizens towards coastal resorts in Southern Europe, in this volume we want look to mobile citizens from other stages of the life course, such as young or middle-age migrants who have chosen to start a new life in the countryside.
Four ‘Early Bird’ articles have been published from the forthcoming Nordic Journal of Migration Research Vol. 2, Issue 3.
The European Commission-United Nations Joint Migration and Development Initiative (JMDI) has launched a photo and video competition to promote the positive impact of migration on development.
In no more than a 10 minute video or one photograph, show us how migrants contribute to the development of both their own country and/or their host country. The first prize winner will receive a paid trip to attend the GFMD in Mauritius and all participants will enjoy visibility at the GFMD where a special area has been reserved for you.
