This project addresses a hitherto mostly unexplored but challenging dimension of European immigration, namely the impact of the spatial distribution, composition and dynamics of diverse migration flows on socio-economic disparity and individual wellbeing across regions. The validity of the so-called Greenwood hypothesis, of an endogenously generated boost to economic growth in the regions the most affected by immigration, will be tested. The project takes also into account the potentially negative socio-economic externalities associated with greater cultural diversity. Co-ordinated in The Netherlands and undertaken by teams of researchers in Estonia, Finland, Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom – with networks extending to other EU countries and globally – the project is innovative in several ways. First and foremost, all analyses are at the regional level (sub-nationally or cross-border). Secondly, an ambitious research design is adopted that combines meso-level regional analysis of migration and socio-economic outcomes with both micro-level spatial analysis of individual wellbeing and with the impact of public policy and institutions. All empirical work is grounded in the development of new network and growth theory aided by meta-analytic generalisations obtained from previous empirical work. The project includes panel data analysis of cultural diversity and regional convergence; micro-level analysis of data on diversity and subjective wellbeing; agent-based modelling and micro-simulation of locational choice; measurement of ‘brain exchange’ effects of tax policy; and systematic quantitative country-specific case studies. The findings will aid the formulation of permanent and temporary migration and integration policies and will provide greater insight into the impact of inter-country differences in welfare systems on migration. Important aspects of the project are enhancing migration research capability and stakeholder engagement. Disciplines: economics, geography, sociology, urban planning, demography.
