RSAI b

The MOBI-TWIN project was presented at the 14th World Conference of the Regional Science Association International, held at the John von Neumann University in Kecskemét, Hungary from 8 to 11 April, 2024.

The project presentation, titled “Are linguistic policies a barrier to interregional migration? A case study in Catalonia,” was delivered by Vicente Royuela, along with co-authors Antonio di Paolo, Raúl Ramos, and Sebastián Ritter.

The impact of linguistic policies on interregional migration patterns, with a focus on Catalonia as a case study is analysed. The presentation highlighted on the potential barriers that linguistic differences may pose for individuals considering moving between regions within Catalonia, and how these barriers can influence decisions regarding migration.

Through a detailed analysis of data and trends, the project outlined the role that the linguistic factors play in the context of regional migration. By examining the relationship between language, culture, and mobility, the researchers were able to discover valuable insights into the dynamics of interregional migration and the importance of linguistic policies in shaping these patterns.

The presentation inspired the conference attendees to engage in meaningful discussions, encouraging further investigation of the nexus between language, identity, and mobility. By addressing an often-overlooked aspect of migration research, the MOBI-TWIN project has made a significant contribution to the field of regional science and has the potential to inform policy decisions related to language and migration in Catalonia and beyond.

The presentation at the 14th World Conference of the Regional Science Association International offered new perspectives and insights into regional dynamics, and highlighted the contribution of the MOBI-TWIN project to the scholarly dialogue on migration and regional dynamics.
