The PhD researchers will work in the project ‘Family ties that bind: A new view of internal migration, immobility and labour-market outcomes (FamilyTies)’, led by Principal Investigator Clara H. Mulder and funded by an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The research team will further include two postdoc researchers and one staff member all based in Groningen, a postdoc and data analyst working in Brussels, and external international collaborators.
Project summary: internal migration (long-distance moves within national borders) is generally assumed to be beneficial to individuals and households. The FamilyTies project has been designed to make a decisive contribution to a much more comprehensive explanation of internal migration and its labour-market outcomes than current, mainly economic, explanations have achieved thus far. It introduces a novel perspective on internal migration and immobility, which focuses on the role of family outside the household in deciding on whether and where to relocate, and which takes into account contemporary family complexity: the family ties perspective. The aim is to identify the role of family ties in internal migration, immobility and labour-market outcomes
