Moving out from the city – a study on families’ migration strategies for social sustainable living outside metropolitan areas
Increasingly, families are moving out from metropolitan areas with expectations of a more social sustainable life. The project investigates these families’ migration strategies in relation to the organisation of daily life and geographical context.
Moving from a metropolitan area imply a reorganization of the families’ daily life regarding housing, work and commuting. The project will with individual register data analyse how these various aspects in families’ daily life enhance or restrict the families' preconditions for moving from a metropolitan area and how the move changes the organisatiton of daily life in various geographical contexts, as well as explore potential effects on (in)equalities in families’ organisation of daily life. The point of departure is to view the move as a strategy to improve the families’ daily life to be more social sustainable.
