International migrants sometimes decide to live in rural instead of in urban areas. These migrants can be clustered into different groups, e.g. amenity migrants, cross-border migrants, asylum seekers, training migrants and working migrants (seasonal and permanent). In rural areas in Germany, for example, in 2010 11.1 per cent of the population had a migratory background (Statistisches Bundesamt 2011). Even though this phenomenon of international migrants moving into rural instead of urban areas exists, it has long been neglected by researchers. The aim of this chapter is to investigate how international migrants support the development of a “globalized countryside” (Woods 2007). Afterwards we focus on two different German case studies. First, we analyse international migration into the district town of Merzig (Saarland). Second, we investigate cross-border migration into rural areas in the German-Austrian borderlands (Bavaria). Based on the results, in our conclusion we discuss the statement that international migrants globalize rural areas. [less ▲]

In the course of the Schengen agreement of 1992, the abandonment of border controls and the introduction of a common currency, the significance of cross-border mobility in the Greater Region Saar – Lor – Lux, Rhineland-Palatinate – Wallonia – French-speaking and German-speaking Community of Belgium has increased considerably over the last two decades. In particular, atypical cross-border commuters who still work in their countries of origin but moved their places of residence to nearby foreign coun-tries play an important role. The number of atypical cross-border commuters with Lux-embourgian nationality who commute regularly from the Greater Region to the Grand Duchy Luxembourg has trebled since 1999. Atypical cross-border commuters prefer communities as places of residence alongside favourable transport axes, permitting daily commuting because of convenient infrastructure. Immigration causes a population growth in the two case study areas – Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland – leading, in combination with the increasing number of cross-border commuters, to new challenges in the German-Luxembourgian border area. These entail diverse consequences for planning and future development. [less ▲]

The Schengen Agreement have opened many European borders and allowed border controls to virtually disappear. The effect of this opening can be illustrated especially well with the example of the German-Luxembourgish border region. Here, national borders have largely lost their dividing effect, which is reflected, amongst other things, in the very intensive daily mobility and residential mobility. This article shows that the diversity of the cross-border practices has relativised the national borders, which, however, persist in the form of new demarcations. This relationship of dissolvement and simultaneous continuity, as it is concisely described with the figure of thought “phantom borders”, will be examined by using example of cross-border residential migration. The number of Luxembourgers who recolate their residence to the German federal states of Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate has risen significantly in recent years. This article is based on data from four different empirical studies, which, using a variety of methods, were concerned with the developments of residential mobility in the border regions of Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate. The results are fundamentally in agreement that the massive residential migration has brought with it spatial differentiations and social demarcations on a local as well as on a regional level. These materialise and manifest themselves in different ways: easily accessible by public or private transport vs. not easily accessible; new residential developments vs. town and village centres, autochthonous vs. allochthonous, Luxembourgers vs. non-Luxembourgers. In all of these demarcation processes, the persistence of national categories is expressed, and they thus refer to the phantom-like continuity of territorial borders in general, as well as a clear incongruity of territorial borders and social demarcations in the context of residential migration in particular.

In the context of globalisation and demographic change, the internationalisation of society is becoming increasingly important, why these anthology raises the awareness for this topic. The first part deals with the topic 'spatial construction through migrants', focusing on the culturally differentiated construction of spaces and landscapes from a theoretical point of view. From a social perspective, the shifts in such needs/requirements and values that people tie to different parts of their spatial environment are of particular interest. For example due to globalisation processes, identity constructions underlie a growing erosion process, concerning the understanding of space and landscape as well as their acquisition. Thus, the different levels of spatial planning are confronted with further differentiated demands in terms of space and landscape presenting major challenges. Based on different case studies, the second topic ‘migration and specific spaces’ that follows the theoretical considerations, reflects spatial demands of migrants and the potential of internationalisation. The selected case studies mainly deal with rural areas as well as the internationalisation in those cities which were not in the academic focus until now. At first, the focus is on the investigation of spatial acquisitions and demands of US-American, Muslim and Turkish migrants. Then the housing situation of migrants is the focal point. This includes the cross-border commuters at the German-Luxembourgish border. The following part is devoted to the potential which can be accompanied by the increasing internationalisation of the society. This is done on the one hand with a theoretical example of identity, home as well as inclusion and exclusion. On the other hand identities and self-attributions of repatriates (so called Aussiedler and Spätaussiedler) from former Soviet Union in Rhineland-Palatinate are discussed. Finally and based on the different articles, recommodations are derived and discussed for the future spatial development that arise in the course of internationalisation of society. The contributions of the anthology are made by: Julia Anslinger, Diedrich Bruns, Chantal Hermes, Jan Hilligardt, Martina Hülz, Bernhard Köppen, Olaf Kühne, Birte Nienaber, Florian Paech, Alexandra Reich, Ursula Roos and Antje Schönwald.

The ESPONontheRoad project was a Transnational Networking Activity (TNA) of nineteen ESPON Contact Points (ECPs) with the aim to bring ESPON results closer for decision-making and thus increase the capitalisation of the ESPON Programme. During a year, participating ECPs brought ESPON closer to the local and regional level, and to citizens in physical and virtual forms. The project built a bridge between the issues on a local level and scientific evidence on EU territorial development policy themes. After taking stock of the most recent policy issues in each national context, ECPs formed transnational working groups to have a common understanding of the messages coming from ESPON results. These working groups designed the most appropriate and efficient form of communication for their target groups. In this way ESPON results were put into the macroregional context of West, South, North and Central-Eastern areas, and both the content-related and the organisational tasks were organised in a balanced way. The activity report summaries the goals of the project, presents how they were implemented and what are the lessons learnt. It concludes with recommendations for the future. [less ▲]

Due to the demographic change, the society becomes increasingly international in the federal states of Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland. Hence, persons with migration background play an important role in urban as well as rural regions. Especially in larger cities and their surrounding areas as well as close to the US-American military bases or in the German-Luxembourgish border region increased percentage shares of foreigners indicate a concentration of persons with foreign nationalities. Depending on the region and the formative structures migrants can be differentiated into sub-groups according to their nationality. Correspondingly, besides the „classic“ guest worker na-tionalities of Italy, Turkey, former Yugoslavia and Greece additional focal points of US-American and Luxembourgish citizens exist. Despite an increasing internationalisation of the society, the phenomenon of different spatial perceptions, spatial demands and spatial adoption of persons with migration background has hardly been studied with regard to its spatial development impact. This collective volume raises awareness for the topics of „migration and space“ and „migration and specific spaces“ and provides recommendations for spatial planning and development. [less ▲]

Cross-border employment and residence are becoming a very important type of mobility in border regions. In the Greater Region, consisting of Luxembourg, Lorraine, Wallonia, Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate, around 213,000 people live and work in two different countries. Most of the cross-border commuters are employed in Luxembourg, representing 44% of the salaried population of Luxembourg. Additionally, the Greater Region is a space of cross-border residential mobility; meaning some people commuting to Luxembourg are former residents of Luxembourg and vice versa. The aim of this paper is to examine the development of the cross-border mobility phenomenon over the last 20 years, as well as to present principal cross-border residential flows of people working in Luxembourg. Furthermore, the paper discusses the impacts these flows have had on the Greater Region. A change has been recognized in the direction of migration flows. Whereas in the 1990s, most of cross-border residential migration was oriented towards Luxembourg, the direction has now changed towards the neighboring countries. Now some German, French and Belgian villages are impacted by these migration trends regarding e.g. an increase of housing prices, different languages, integration and schooling. Furthermore, from a conceptual point of view, it is difficult to describe the reality of the cross-border phenomenon due to the diversification of profiles and trajectories. This paper consists of two methodological strands, showing on one hand different cross-border developments based on large quantitative datasets and on the other hand giving an impression of impacts and challenges caused by cross-border migration based on qualitative interviews.
