New Families, Old Societies – New Challenges of Migration for Families in their Countries of Origin
The way transnational family members have become integrated in their target countries has been subjected quite extensively to diaspora research. On the other hand, most of the research on transnational families focuses on the transnational functioning of this type of family. Our section proposes to host foremostly papers focusing on the challenges the growth in number and variety of transnational families raises for the countries of origin. Special attention is given to presentations discussing geographically Eastern European countries.
