The papers that make up this special issue on “Mobility, housing and labour markets in times of economic crises” published in “Regional studies” originate from a NECTAR1 Cluster 4 meeting (devoted to travel, migration, housing and labour market issues) held in Toledo, Spain, in October 2016. These empirically based contributions cover various different European studies for different regional contexts. The special issue can be found here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00343404.2020.1711879
