Population and Migration

Andre Quesnel - Postgraduate - (A+)
Department of Planning and Regional Development, University of Thessaly

This course aims to provide the basic knowledge for the analysis of migratory flows, the two-way relationship between migration and population concentration in various spatial scales as well as, to discuss the relations between geographical mobility and socioeconomic variables. After successful completion of this course the student will acquire the basic knowledge of methods and techniques for the study of geographical mobility and will be able to use them critically by analyzing available data. Additionally, the student will be capable of understanding the interplay between geographic mobility and external demographic socioeconomic variables; variables that vary considerably depending on the test environment / analysis scale This course aims to equip the students with: • the ability to search for data, analysis and synthesis, • decision-making capacity based on research results, • the ability to self-development and work in a future interdisciplinary work environment, • the ability to advance free, creative and inductive thinking, through the development of critical skills, as well as the necessary quantitative background of understanding complicated relationships linking the various phenomena.
