Primary Session Category: Sociology of Immigration
Session Code: SoImm4-B
Session Format: Regular (Presentations and Discussion)
The diasporic and transnational movements of people in an era of globalization and neoliberalism have tremendous impact on im/migrants, their countries of origin and the host societies. In recent years, there has been increasing interests in the social, cultural, economic and political relations of these im/migrants and their sending states/societies. This session invites papers which address various forms of transnational engagement. These forms may include but are not limited to the following: political engagement, peace building, spiritual/religious activities, business/entrepreneur endeavours, matrimonial arrangements, and familial networks. The im/migrants may be involved in different levels of political associations (local, regional, state), may have various citizenship status (dual, single, limited, or no citizenship), and may conduct circular or return migration practices.
