New mobilities across the lifecourse: A framework for analysing demographically-linked drivers of migration

Allan M Findlay, David McCollum, Rory Coulter, Vernon Gayle

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

Migration, along with fertility and mortality, is one of the fundamental drivers of population change. Taking the lifecourse as the central concern, the authors set out a theoretical framework and define some key research questions for a programme of research that explores how the linked lives of mobile people are situated in time-space within the economic, social and cultural structures of contemporary society. Drawing on methodologically innovative techniques, these perspectives can offer conceptually significant and policy relevant insights into the changing nature and meanings of migration across the lifecourse.
