As a co-investigator with the On the Move Partnership, Marit Aure will be looking at employment-related geographical mobility from an international perspective. Her research will focus on mobility and migration related to oil and gas activity in Northern Norway, especially to the communities of Hammerfest and Kvalsund. She will also study young peoples’ ideas about this industry, their own futures and how their views on education and moving are related to oil and gas development. Aure will collaborate with other On the Move researchers to compare aspects of her research in Northern Norway with processes going on in Canada. In order to do so, she will also visit field sites in Canada. While her work will primarily focus on qualitative research, it will also draw on statistical data.
