Places with perceived high environmental quality and distinctive culture are globally attracting amenity migrants. Today this societal driving force is particularly manifest in mountain areas, and while beneficial for both the newcomers and locals, is also threatening highland ecologies and
their human communities. This book describes and analyses the challenges and opportunities of amenity migration and its management, and offers related recommendations. The books chapters cover the subject through case studies at international, regional and local levels, along with overarching themes
such as environmental sustainability and equality, mountain recreation users, housing, and spiritual motivation. A crucial issues addressed is the relationship of amenity migration to tourism, and migration motivated by economic gain. The introduction and concluding chapters bring all of the
information and analyses together strategically, summarizing in a manner of theoretical and practical value for both academics and practitioners.
