U-RuralCIR-SEG: Urban-Rural circulation and segregation post Covid

On going


Abstract: This project brings together a large multidisciplinary team of sociologists, anthropologists, economists, geographers and historians from research centres and universities in France, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Argentina to create a research network dedicated to the study of rural-urban circulation and segregation in the post-covid period. With a focus on Europe, the network is looking at other national and extra-European territorial realities, starting with Argentina, in order to deepen the social and territorial logics underlying the phenomena studied. With a view to building a conceptual model, the network's activity aims to promote innovative empirical research.

Final beneficiaries/target population: Academic community; European policy-makers at different levels of territorial political action.
