This session invites papers on various forms of transnational engagement with countries of origin. These forms may include: socio-cultural linkage, entrepreneurship, political engagement, peace building, spiritual/religious activities, periodical visits, familial engagement, involvement in regional associations, citizenship (dual, single, limited, or no citizenship), circular and returning migration. All these forms of engagement merits sociological inquiry, both theoretical and empirical, and have the potential of advancing development in countries of origin as well as in Canada.
