A multi-level spatial interaction modelling framework for estimating interregional migration in Europe

This paper presents a new spatial interaction modelling framework for  estimating sub-national, international migration flows. A new family of models is introduced and exemplified for a sample system before issues of parameter calibration and model inputs are discussed using examples from Europe. Sub-optimum models are used to explore model assumptions and the accuracy of flow predictions across the European system, before we present the results of the optimum model and exemplify some  important inter-regional flows which emerge from the model predictions.
