Transnational migration research

Derya Ozkul University of Sydney, Australia

abstract This article introduces transnationalism as distinct from globalization and diaspora. It first explores transnationalism research from a historical perspective. The next section reviews some of the critiques of transnationalism with regard to its extent, its novelty and theoretical strength. Later it elaborates on transnationalism in a network society, and suggests how the exploration of transnationalism has contributed to social enquiry. Finally it assesses the literature and discusses the possible future directions for social research.
