International migrations

International migration has become a key demographic phenomenon when explaining the evolution of Catalonia’s population and that of most countries which have gone undergone demographic transition. The Group for Demographic and Migration Studies (GEDEM) leads this line of research.
Increased population diversity, a product of these migratory movements, and their relationship with vulnerability, is a matter of interest in both public policy and for scientists specialising in the migratory phenomenon. The line of research concerned with international migration approaches, from the standpoint of demography, the theoretical and administrative aspects of migration and immigrant populations with particular emphasis on their spatial distribution and the demographic dynamics of the immigrant population in relation with the autochthonous population. This area of research is notable for its mixed methodological approach, both quantitative and qualitative which, focused on the Catalan and Spanish cases, seeks international comparison. Special attention is given to graphic and cartographic representation of the phenomena under study on the smallest possible scale, and also to innovation in the theoretical perspective.
