Many children of immigrants are more likely to move within the country of settlement than native-born youth. This so-called internal mobility during childhood is a potentially stressful life event which may have adverse consequences later in life. In the MYMOVE project, we study how moving as a child influences the health, well-being, and family formation of migrants and natives later in life. This is done by using longitudinal population register data and survey panel data from across Europe.
The MYMOVE project is funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant (De Valk).
