Transnational mobility, identities and agency

The transnational mobility, identities and agency theme examines the ways increased crossborder flows of goods and services, finance, people, information and media content affect lives, cultures and politics throughout the world. This research examines the various networks of power that become operationalised in the context of global flows. At a global level, international migration is becoming a key theme in debates on governance. People’s border-crossing movements are not just about a flow from the South to the North and the East to the West; bidirectional migration also occurs. Furthermore, ecological stress and social fragility are creating regional crises, and one key consequence of this is the increasing number of environmental migrants, both as a result of conflicts and the degradation of livelihoods and basic services. These changes affect people’s identity construction and agency both in the global South and North, creating global political and religious movements, but also triggering defence reactions for the preservation of what are constructed as local cultures.
