Abstract

Changes in living space often derive from complex and multiple factors, which are both of objective and subjective, rational and irrational nature. The issues which are linked to the presence of new populations are analysed, in the area of residential economics, in terms of costs v. returns, which is somewhat simplistic. Conversely, the deciding factors which have determined the choice of residence are rarely analysed. Consequently, on the basis of a wide survey complemented by semi-directed interviews, we will attempt to unravel the criteria of choice of the Britons who have chosen to take up residence in Aquitaine, with some “départements” being more popular than others. These migrants will display some important inter (and infra) departmental specificities relating to their socio-demographic origin and biographical background, as well as their previous residential and professional experience. These results may lead us to think that the differences expressed in the reasons they give for their choice of residence stem partly from these specificities. Therefore, without claiming to include all factors, an in-depth analysis appears necessary. This analysis will set out to neutralize first of all the differences between the migrant agents, in order to determine the appeal due mainly to the attraction of the place of destination and then the differences between territories and modes of residence, in order to determine what results from the migrant agents themselves – both aspects being in reality more or less entwined.
