Research project "The mobility of the dead", is a research project that aims at contribution to the theoretical discussion regarding humans attachments to places.
In studies on human mobility, the focus has been set on human actions when they are alive. There is naturally nothing strange about this, but humans do not cease to be mobile just they happen to die. The mobility flows of the dead, or post-mortal mobility flows, often target places of impotrance of the deseased individual when he/she were alive. Knowledge of factors influenceing post-mortal mobility can contribute to existing knowledge regarding important places for humans, something that cannot be done if we only study humans when they are alive.
