Although globalization brings work to (some) places all over the world, the growing international mobility of workers (and refugees) will be a social and political challenge. At the same time and in part originated by globalization and transnational migration, there is emerging a qualitative social reality of "transnational social spaces" built by pluri-locally spanned social institutions, life trajectories and biographical projects in specific institutional settings and material infrastructures. These transnational social spaces are questioning and going far beyond the traditional concepts of national and welfare states, of acculturation and integration, and of simple ethnic minorities, diaspora and multiculturalism. To cope with these realities, (local and transnational) social norms, structures and regulations are needed as well as sociological approaches to transnational migration. The volume presents conceptual frameworks and empirical studies of transnational migration processes and the emergence of pluri-social transnational social spaces.
