Avainsanat:evolutionary regional development, migration systems, field of choices
Regional socio-economic development and migration are strongly interwoven phenomena.
Migration has always been integral part – cause and/or effect – of regional economic development. Migration has also become increasingly topical issue for socio-economic development especially outside of a few growth centers. In this short paper our aim is to further develop a conceptual focusing device of “field of choices” to analyze migration from regional economic development point of view. Field of choices simplifying conceptual tool to organize the analysis, but it might be used also for migration management and policy design. We also bring together the literatures from regional studies and migration to do this.
