​There are people who don't live in a single country but lead transnational lives. They are an extremely diverse group, spanning divides in privileges, preferences, rights and motivations. In a new special issue of Population Space and Place, we examine the phenomenon of transnational living and explore it through a range of thematic and regional perspectives.

​Join us for a launch webinar in which we present how transnational living matters -- as a concept and a real-word phenomenon -- and give your teasers of the articles included in the special issue.

Register if you would like to receive a reminder. The event is open for all.
