A paper by our Steering Group member Dr Sabina Maslova and Prof Russell King has been published in Cities.

Maslova, S. and King, R. (2020) Residential trajectories of high-skilled transnational migrants in a global city: Exploring the housing choices of Russian and Italian professionals in London. Cities, 96, January 2020.

The paper explores the residential trajectories of highly skilled transnational migrants in London.  Motivations of migrant housing preferences and choices observed across three stages and it was notable that Italians build multi-stage housing careers with many moves during their stay and that Russians demand high-quality housing and are less inclined to multi-occupancy. Two exogenous factors were brought into the analysis: housing market and Brexit.
