Transnational mobilities

Transnational mobility is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. While nation-states have long been recognised as a the only political entities that should govern the movement of people, capital, care, knowledge and skills, many nation-states’ core functions and sources of legitimacy are being challenged, re-evaluated and re-worked in the face of growing volumes and diversified forms of transnational mobility.

In a time of large refugee streams, a rise in popularity of border walls and travel bans, there is an urgent need for critical perspectives that consider how people from different walks of life are forging – through a dynamic multiplicity of transnational mobilities and moorings – alternative ways in which to respond to fortified borders, and organise and make use of resources and relations to meet their needs.
