The Institute for Regional Development is working on an international project on the migration impact assessment towards local development in rural and mountain areas of Europe. It develops and tests a transdisciplinary conceptual and methodological framework to measure the impacts of Third Country Nationals (TCNs) on local development in rural and mountain regions across Europe. TCNs are an important factor of socio-economic development and have a strong yet under-researched effect on the relationships between urban and rural/mountain areas.
The project co-constructs the migration impact assessment and elaborates policy recommendations and governance solutions. Overall, the project improves knowledge on the social and economic development potential of TCNs in rural and mountain areas. It helps to understand the mechanisms behind the socio-economic integration of TCNs and it provides policy makers, practitioners and local stakeholders with analytical tools and place-based solutions/policy recommendations to counteract misperceptions and untap the migration potential in rural and mountain regions.
The Institute for Regional Development of Eurac Research is looking for a trainee, who will give substantial help for the activities connected to the project, collect and manage data referring to the topic and the project.
