Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

22 Scopus citations


This third and final report on geographies of migration highlights the complexities of international migration through the two related processes of transit and transnationalism. Examining spaces of transit and transnationalism complicates notions that migration is a straightforward movement. The report first turns to transit migration in order to examine the multiple processes, spaces, and experiences in-between the beginning and endpoints of migrant journeys. It then shows how migrants and states create transnational spaces beyond national borders. I conclude that future research might focus on the connections between transit and transnationalism to more fully understand how mobility and immobility are intertwined.
