The MOVE-INNOCOM project bases on extensive anthropological and qualitative-sociological fieldwork. On two case study sites in the Murmansk Oblast and West Siberia , we study in many interviews the relocation history of incoming migrants to northern industrial cities and the process of developing a sense of place among these people for their young northern industrial cities.
