Research Program: Digital Traces of Migrants

The research program develops an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on migration studies, sociology, psychology and social informatics. It makes use of Big Data analysis. It integrates these perspectives and methodologies into a common focus on unobvious migrant characteristics relating to behavioural insights and informal human capital characteristics. The research program addresses the fundamental issue of international mobility of humans: Who migrates and who stays?
