Migració internacional, acció i desenvolupament regional a l’Europa rural



La migració internacional a les zones rurals s’ha convertit en un procés cada vegada més important a Europa que adquireix el potencial d’actuar com a factor clau del canvi en els espais involucrats. Els primers resultats obtinguts fins ara documenten els patrons de la migració internacional i les experiències dels migrants, però aquest cos emergent de la literatura és parcial i fragmentada entre diversos estudis que, a diferents escales regionals, es focalitzen en alguns tipus específics de migració. Aquest treball té com a objectiu construir una perspectiva més holística a partir dels coneixements aportats per tres projectes d’investigació que col·lectivament han estudiat múltiples dimensions de la migració en diversos casos d’estudi europeus. S’aprecien característiques generals de la migració internacional contemporània a les zones rurals que denoten la complexitat dels processos migratoris i els seus impactes, i que posen en qüestió moltes de les percepcions preestablertes de la migració de les zones rurals. També es presenta quin és l’impacte de la migració internacional per a les localitats receptores i, en particular, es considera la contribució potencial que té aquesta migració internacional per al desenvolupament regional.
