This book critically evaluates the transnational communities approach to contemporary international migration. It does so through a specific focus on the relationship between 'transnational communities' and 'home'. The meaning of 'home' for international migrants is changing and evolving, as new globally-oriented identities are developed. These issues are explored through a number of central themes: the meaning of 'home' to transnational peoples, the implications of transforming these social spaces and how these have been transformed.
Part 1: Introduction
Part 2: Transnational Communities and the Meaning of 'Home'
Part 3: The Implications of Transforming Homes for Transnational Communities
Part 4: Transnational Communities and the Transformation of Home
