The Population Geography Research Group (PGRG) provides a forum for population geographers to present and discuss the latest findings of research in the sub-discipline through its conference and publication activities, to debate relevant theoretical, philosophical and methodological issues, and to consider policy dimensions, both in the UK and internationally.

Britain on the Move 2012


 

BOTM

On the 17th and 18th December, 2012, the Population Geography Research Group hosted a conference at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington, celebrating 20 years since the publication of Tony Champion and Tony Fielding’s edited collection on migration processes and patterns.

In the two decades since publication, “Migration Processes and Patterns – Research Progress and Prospects” (along with its sister “Migration Processes and Patterns – Population Redistribution in the United Kingdom” – Edited by John Stillwell, Phil Rees and Pete Boden) has been a key resource for scholars and teachers in migration and wider human geography.

The conference was an opportunity to revisit this work and and re-examine the themes that were identified twenty years ago in the context of contemporary Britain.

Below are the sessions and papers which featured in the conference complete with accompanying audio. Please download and listen at your leisure.
