IMISCOE’s Research Initiative PriMob is happy to announce that the ‘Mapping the field‘ section of its website is ready and open for consultation.
This section aims at being a go-to source of scholarly references in the field of privileged mobilities and migration. It is a public output of PriMob and has the potential to function as an entry point to the field for other scholars, practitioners, journalists, and students.
Launched in 2019, PriMob is an IMISCOE network of researchers working on diverse forms of privileged migration, such as retirement, lifestyle, investment, amenity, entrepreneurial, elite, highly skilled and international residential mobilities. The research initiative is currently composed by 46 researchers from 17 countries and is coordinated by Jennifer McGarrigle and Franz Buhr, from the Institute of Geography and Spatial Planning (IGOT), University of Lisbon.
During the second half of 2020, the network members actively contributed to the making of this section, by suggesting the articles, books, or chapters that they considered to be central for each of the proposed topics. The list is non-exhaustive and will require constant updates, but it already provides an overview of the field’s diversity.
This initiative translates an effort to systematize scholarly knowledge on migration, making it clearer and more accessible. It was inspired by the collaborative approach to knowledge accumulation put into practice by IMISCOE’s Migration Research Hub.
