Internal migration in a surviving Austria-Hungary


Ad Honoris
May 2014
I was wondering what internal migration would have looked like in a surviving Austria-Hungary (for instance, due to World War I never occurring). I'm presuming that the more developed areas of A-H (German Austria, the Sudetenland, Czechia, and parts of Hungary) would have received a lot of migrants from other, less developed parts of Austria-Hungary but I was also wondering if the southern part of Austria-Hungary (Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia) could have eventually experienced a lot of growth and become an attractive destination from migrants from other parts of A-H as a result of their warm climate. Basically, I want to know if these areas could have eventually become A-H's Sun Belt.

Any thoughts on all of this?
