Special Collection 24

Spatial mobility, family dynamics, and gender relations

Published 28 August 2019

This Special Collection of Demographic Research – edited by Sergi Vidal and Johannes Huinink – highlights the importance of and expands our knowledge on the interplay between family, gender, and spatial mobility. The papers in this special collection deal with a number of under-researched areas that include, but are not restricted to, family ties outside the household and gender differences in willingness to move, circular mobility patterns, and the nonlabour market outcomes of family migration. Insights from these studies not only clarify concrete associations, but also offer roadmaps for revealing the mechanisms that explain them.
