Transnational Migration in Transition: Transformative Characteristics of Temporary Mobility of People (EURA-NET)

Jul 06, 2015 | 04:00 PM c.t. - 06:00 PM

Human movement between Europe and Asia gains increasingly in importance. Migration scholars and political actors have paid broad attention to the drivers of ‘traditional’ international migration, but still deficiencies exit regarding transforming features and patterns of temporary types of transnational movements. Furthermore, there are empirical gaps with respect to the particular impact as well as resulting challenges and opportunities that this form of migration has for societies of emigration, immigration and transit. One central component of the investigation in the EURA-NET project seeks to fill this gap by providing new empirical insights on the nature of temporary migration in the Euro-Asia transnational space. The lecture will present methodological procedures, conceptual components and preliminary empirical findings for the German-Asian context.
