Renegotiating Remoteness

Migration to rural Europe

Recently, the EU Horizon 2020 Project MATILDE has launched its newest Open Access publication "Assessing the Social Impact of Immigration in Europe. Renegotiating Remoteness". 

This book is a compendium of many key findings and results collected over the last 3 years by the international consortium of this project. MATILDE aims to investigate the socio-economic impact of international migrations on European rural and mountain areas. 

The collective work around this international project examines the changes in social structures and the variation of everyday life through the renegotiation of remoteness, the key aspect of the territories under examination. 

Jussi P. Laine, Daniel Rauhut and Marika Gruber edit the book.
