Transnational Migration, Citizenship and the Circulation of Rights and Responsibilities (TRANSMIC)

TRANSMIC is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network project funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme for the period of 1.9.2014 – 31.8.2018. The aim of TRANSMIC is to contribute to the understanding of transnational migration, in particular by looking at the conditions for and effects of transnational migration, possibilities for the mobility of migrants’ rights to be enhanced, and the links between migration, citizenship, and migration and development (see https://law.maastrichtuniversity.nl/transmic/ )

The scientific objectives

  • To contribute to the clarification of the concept of transnational migration by carrying out theory-based analyses as well as empirical research
  • To collect a rich pool of empirical data and produce comparative evidence on the conditions for and effects of transnational migration patterns
  • To develop and arrive at explanations of transnational migration patterns that are beneficial for the countries of origin and destination, as well as for the individual migrant, with a specific geographic coverage of China, Africa, India, and Latin America where one or more partners have established contacts for a sound research collaboration

Ten Ph.D. and three post-doctoral researchers will implement research projects within the framework of the TRANSMIC project.

The main training objectives

  • To instill researchers with a sound knowledge of quantitative and qualitative, as well as legal research methods in the field of migration and to acquaint them with interdisciplinary research
  • To provide researchers with insights into theories and concepts of migration research
  • To equip young researchers with practical skills that prepare them for the job market within the European multi-level system and/or academia.

The topic of the research conducted at the University of Tampere is “Transformative Impact of Student Migration between China and Non-English Speaking EU Countries”(funding around 200,000 e). The focus of the research lies in the characteristics and the societal impact of transnational mobility of tertiary-level students between China and selected non-English speaking EU countries (Finland, Germany and the Netherlands). Special attention is paid to the societal impact of overseas mobility in higher education and to the social remittances which are being transmitted in the EU-Asia transnational spaces.

Research group at the University of Tampere: Professor Pirkko Pitkänen (person in charge), Dr. Virve Kallioniemi-Chambers (contact person) and PhD student Hanwei Li.

TRANSMIC is coordinated by Maastricht University (The Netherlands). In addition to University of Tampere, partner institutions are: University of Liège (Belgium), University of Minho (Portugal), University of Oxford (UK), University of Aix-Marseille (France), University of Warsaw (Poland) and Centre for European Policy Studies- CEPS (Brussels/Belgium).
