This dissertation aims to contribute to ongoing theorisation of so-called “new types of migration” which are not directed to achieve (only) economic objectives. It explores small group of recent internal and international immigrants to previously un-research Croatian island Korčula which otherwise suffers population and economic decline but with valuable natural and cultural resources. To better explain the context of these type of migration we used the theoretical concept of lifestyle migration (Benson & O'Reilly, 2009b) – the concept that connects more dispersed migrant phenomenon such as retirement migration, amenity migration, migration related to second homes and counter-urban migration.
