Transnational Migration in Transition: Transformative Characteristics of Temporary Mobility of People (EURA-NET)

Project summary

The objective of the EURA-NET project is to attain an understanding of the current characteristics and related policy impact of temporary and circular transnational migration, e.g. the border-crossing mobility of seasonal workers, students, tourists and corporate workers. The elementary aim is to promote migration governance in a development perspective at all levels, from national to international.

Research data will be gathered through interviews with individual migrants (and non-migrants) and national policy-makers in China, Finland, Germany, Hungary, India, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Thailand, Turkey and Ukraine, as well as in wider European and international contexts. The findings in the European-Asian context will provide insights to be applied to other world regions.

EURA-NET will provide comparative practical insights and comprehensive theoretical analyses of the transformative characteristics and development impacts of temporary migration and mobility in highly industrialised societies, transformation countries (emerging economies, transition countries, e.g.) and developing countries.

By uncovering how politics structure people’s border-crossing movements in migrant-sending, migrant-receiving and transit countries and by shedding light on the international practices and lived experiences of individual migrants, the project will help European policy-makers to address challenges arising in the increasingly interconnected and demographically mobile world. The research outcomes will be communicated in the forms of scientific and policy reports and policy briefs to multi-level interest groups.
