Implications de la mobilité quotidienne dans les stratégies résidentielles transfrontalières.

Abstract : Between 2001 and 2007, nearly 8,000 resi­dents of Luxembourg went to live in Bel­gium, Germany and France though they remained employed in Luxembourg. For the vast majority of these people, this cross-bor­der move implies a growth of commuting distance and can therefore be regarded as a particular form of cross-border suburbaniza­tion. Despite these growing distances, indi­viduals report some residential satisfaction. However, beyond this apparent satisfaction, the analyses reveal some paradoxes. In terms of location first, it appears that most respondents would have liked to stay in the Grand Duchy, but at the same time only few of them wish to move back to Luxembourg. Then, in terms of daily mobility, the results suggest that residential satisfaction is little affected by dissatisfaction with commuting. Moreover, while the difficulties of commu­ting are often invoked by those seeking to return to Luxembourg, the mobility pro­blems are much less mentioned by the people actually being returned to live in the Grand Duchy. The role of daily mobility in these cross-border residential strategies is therefore complex
