Picture of Mobility and Family in Transnational Space

Mobility and Family in Transnational Space

Editor(s): Marzia Grassi, Tatiana Ferreira
Contributors: Theodora Lefkaditou, Teresa Cueva-Luna, Tatiana Ferreira, Rosemarie Albrecht, Roger Canals, Marzia Grassi,

Book Description

This book brings together a range of papers on transnational lives, mobility and gender studies from various disciplinary perspectives and geographical contexts, including European, African and American countries.

The thirteen contributions to the volume provide insights into transnational migration and family issues, offering a renewed theoretical approach to the differing conditions in migration access in origin societies and the scope of social inclusion in the receiving countries. The diversity of the authors’ backgrounds and the range of geographical contexts allow a wider understanding of the family in the transnational space, one that considers mobility as a developmental opportunity for individuals, whose consequences in the contemporary world have not yet been sufficiently studied.
