The study has a dual goal. The first objective is to present both a comprehensive and at the same time concise picture of the extent of geographic mobility in the European Union, its evolution over time and of the characteristics of individuals affected by mobility. The second objective is to investigate how geographic mobility in the European Union can be optimised. The study adopts a wide definition of geographic mobility. It considers not only changes of residency within countries and across borders, but also various other mobility contracts, such as cross-border and regional commuting.
