Advances in agent-based modelling have led to theoretically-grounded spatial agent models of urban dynamics, capturing the dynamics of population, property prices, and regeneration. We leverage our extant agent-based model founded on the rent-gap theory, as a lens to study the effect of sizeable refugee migration in an abstracted model of a densely-populated Mediterranean city. Our exploratory work provides the foundation for calibration with real data, and offers a step towards a tool for policy makers asking what-if questions about the urban environment in the context of migration.
