On ways to explore migrants' transnational connections


Milena Belloni speaks to Valentina Mazzucato about how she explores the minute details of everyday migrant transnationalism: the ties and relationships that connect migrants with other people across nation-state borders.

Valentina highlights the importance of exploring transnationalism from different locations simultaneously, the value of defocusing from the migrants’ side of the story, and speaks about the implications of transnational ties for people who remain deeply interconnected despite leading their lives apart.

Valentina Mazzucato is is Professor of Globalisation & Development at Maastricht University and she directs the research programme on Globalisation, Transnationalism and Development.
