This is a list of essential terms of the mobility. Your contributions help keep the list fresh and up to date: you can propose new words or redefine those already on the list by refining or supplementing their current definitions. Each lexicon entry comes with both a brief definition and a more detailed explanation, accompanied by a bibliography. Some definitions include suggestions for further discussion or research opportunities. Wherever a lexicon entry appears on the site, its brief definition is available as well, and if so required, you can follow a link to see the complete definition.
A "coherent area" refers to an inter-communal space determined by the overlap of an "employment pool" and a "labour pool"; it thus enjoys a certain autonomy, thanks to an optimal match between the resident labour force and local jobs. This has the effect of limiting the range of movements, promoting the population’s spatial integration and strengthening a sense of territorial belonging.
