He will speak about Northern cities and urban-rural migration of university-qualified labour (UQL).
Linus' research interests concern regional development, rurality and urbanisation, community empowerment, and the specifics of the Arctic context. His PhD research is done as part of the Cities of the North project, and he is currently investigating and comparing regional development policies in sparsely populated northern regions across the globe, as well as university qualified labour UQL) migration patterns and urbanisation processes, with a focus on Norra Norraland in Sweden, and Northern Australia in Australia. The seminar will focus on UQL migration, planning, and supply in the concerned regions from the perspective of 'spillover', 'sponge', or 'disconnected' cities theories. The research is done in collaboration with Dean Carson and Doris Carson.
