Basing on the data of migrant population surplus/decline in Russian cities for the period 1991-2009 the attempt is made to evaluate the impact of the population size of a city as well as the city position in the system of central-peripheral relations on its migration balance. The author also explains the existing migration mobility pattern through hierarchy of cities within a region.
This working paper was prepared by the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) in cooperation with the National Institute of Strategic Studies (NISS) of the Kyrgyz Republic as a part of the "International migration: trends, challenges and prospects" project. The working paper analyzes the main trends in migration in the Kyrgyz Republic in the context of its entry into the Eurasian Economic Union. The paper explores the main trends in migration policy in Russia and Kyrgyzstan, the causes of emigration from the KR to Russia, the accommodations of Kyrgyz labor migrants in Russia, new conditions emerging with the entry of the Kyrgyz Republic into the EEU. The authors of the Working paper offer their vision of likely migration scenarios and their recommendations for more favorables migration regimes in country the the migrants' origin and for the host country.
The article analyses the differences in demographic dynamics for settlements and areas of different types viewed from the perspective of the center-periphery conception. The author veries the hypothesis that in modern conditions the concentration of the population increases in regional centers and adjacent areas, the regional dynamics of the population in certain administrative and territory units is as strong as the interregional one. The periphery territories of different regions have fewer differences compared with regional centers. This factor forms the interregional socioeconomic differentiation. The article also provides the dynamics of the
population in cities, towns and rural areas depending on their remoteness from the regional center.
This paper evaluates disparity between the regional center and regional periphery using the data on the components of population dynamics in low-level ATU for the period 1990-2002. It analyses migration outcomes for 10 Russian regions in terms of the remoteness from the center and also compares the difference between the regional centers and regional periphery when it comes to the indicators of natural and mechanical population decline.
