© 2018 Elsevier Ltd This Special Issue is concerned with a specific type of migration, that of international migrants to rural and regional communities with little prior experience of migration; so called New Immigration Destinations. The collection seeks to better comprehend the complex associations between processes of migrant incorporation in ‘new’ migrant spaces, rural transformations and the evolving inter-group relationships. The papers are all based on empirical data, representing scenarios across Europe and in Australia that demonstrate how the arrival of different types of migrants have led to fundamental social transformations across rural society. The SI advances our knowledge of different types of migrant incorporation, that of lifestyle, labour and refugee migrants. It sheds light on a range of issues including precarity, cosmopolitanism, rural sustainability, relations between sending and receiving countries and the role of civil society.
