Background

Although people’s trans-boundary mobility is not a new phenomenon it has never attained such extent and complexity as it has in the contemporary world.

The chains of transnational movements have lengthened and spread considerably. People may leave one country, for various reasons, move to a second, and then either return to their initial home country, or move on to a third.

While considerable attention has been paid by researchers and policy-makers to the drivers and patterns of border-crossing migration, an analysis of the characteristics of temporary transnational mobility has been largely lacking.

There are ongoing temporary transnational movements among and between low and high income regions, with different implications and challenges for countries of emigration, immigration and transit.

Temporary transnational migration presents opportunities and challenges to governance at all levels, from national to international, and involve a multiplicity of actors and stakeholders.

EURA-NET aims to:

  • learn more about the current characteristics of temporary transnational mobility and related policies in the European-Asian context
  • provide new insights on the political, economic and socio-cultural transformations arising from temporary transnational movements
  • provide policy-relevant information on how temporary migration can be harnessed to promote development and improve livelihoods in the countries of emigration, immigration and transit
  • provide information to improve the formulation and implementation of national, European and international policies on temporary migration.
