Thomas Faist will hold a conference entitled 'We are all Transnationals now - The Relevance of Transnationality for Social Inequalities'.
In migration research in particular and mobility research more generally, the study of inequalities of resources, status, and power is mostly confined to a single country (and usually the immigration country); and occasionally international comparisons are undertaken. This state of affairs occludes more recent discussions on inequalities and cross-border mobility in other fields of the social sciences, such as the discussions on globalization and cosmopolitanism which generates new questions:
Does transnationality actually matter for the social position of migrants and related non-migrants?
Does transnationality matter in interaction with other markers of difference, such as gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, and legal status?
