The presence of families in migration streams is a crucial topic of the political, social and public debates. As researchers, scholars and practitioners witnessing the lives of migrant families, we have both the power and obligation to contribute to a salient discussion on important social issues.
This call for papers has been inspired by two strands of research interests. Our first and most evident inspiration originates from our work and cooperation within the research project - Doing family in transnational context. Demographic choices, welfare adaptations, school integration and every-day life of Polish families living in Polish-Norwegian transnationality (Transfam) which has been led by the Institute of Sociology, Jagiellonian University between 2013 and 2016. Our second broader aim responds to the current European migration crisis.
