Understanding spatial mobility from early life into adulthood

Project Details


Moving is an important and recurrent experience already from an early age. Moving experiences are also diverse – some moves relate to improving wellbeing, others reinforce disadvantages – and we do not know well the extent to which individual moving histories build up into different lives and underlie extant social inequalities. The EU-funded LIFELONGMOVE project considers how spatial mobility evolves since childhood, contributing to diversity in life paths in adulthood. It addresses how moving experiences and conditions since earlier ages can affect moving behaviour and life outcomes in later ages. The findings will shed light on the pathways, resources and strategies that underlie lifelong mobility and propose alternatives to the conventional explanations of spatial mobility over the life course.
