Background to the conference

20 years ago, Champion and Fielding’s (1992) two volume edited collection on migration patterns and processes was published.  This provided a landmark intervention within migration studies and wider human geography, demonstrating how different types of migration in GB were undergoing changes and giving rise to new patterns of population, housing and economies.  For the last two decades, this book has provided a key resource for geographers and social scientists teaching the subject of migration and mobility, and scholars more widely teaching issues which inter-connect with migration and mobility.

This conference will review changes in GB internal migration over the past two decades, and look towards our future research and teaching agendas.
