New Approaches to Migration?: Transnational Communities and the Transformation of Home

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Jan 14, 2004 - Political Science - 264 pages
This book critically evaluates the transnational communities approach to contemporary international migration. It does so through a specific focus on the relationship between 'transnational communities' and 'home'. The meaning of 'home' for international migrants is changing and evolving, as new globally-oriented identities are developed. These issues are explored through a number of central themes: the meaning of 'home' to transnational peoples, the implications of transforming these social spaces and how these have been transformed.
