CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVES ON GLOBALISATION AND MIGRATION

There is an interlocking connection among concepts such as migration-remittances-identities and voluntary associations. The latter two are issues that are not as measurable as the former two, but are crucial in social science and humanities research about migration patterns and its attendant links to emotional ties, roles and responsibilities that people have towards their families. This edition is an attempt to elaborate on them.
