From the periphery to the core: direct and indirect effects of the migration of labour


  • Ana Viñuela
  • Esteban Fernández Vázquez


In den vergangenen 20 Jahren erlebte Spanien einen bedeutenden Anstieg der Binnenmobilität, insbesondere eine Binnenwanderung von den peripheren in die zentralen Regionen. Gleichzeitig kam es zu einem Massenzustrom von Gastarbeitern aus aller Welt, die sich ebenfalls in den Zentrumsregionen niederliessen. Unter Anwendung des analytischen Regionalmodells von Polèse et al. (in Eur Urban Reg Stud 14(2): 157–180, 2007 ), welches uns die Unterscheidung zwischen peripheren und zentralen Regionen ermöglicht, sowie eines Multiregion-Modell, basierend auf Fernández-Vázquez et al. (in Ann Reg Sci 46(1): 189–204, 2010 ), berücksichtigt der vorliegende Beitrag beide Ströme, sowohl die Binnen- wie die Einwanderung, um die Wirkungskette ausgelöst durch die eintreffenden Arbeitsmigranten in den Kernregionen zu untersuchen.
