This special collection aims to advance the current debates on transnational social protection further by showing the ways in which formal and informal social protection, which usually are treated as separate entities, intersect and reinforce inequalities on a transnational level. Contributions to this special collection aim to draw attention to the complexity of processes through which gender intersects with other social categories, such as ethnicity, age, migrant status, and class, in the realm of formal and informal social protection. In doing so, the publications aim to avoid methodological nationalism and static, localized views on gender, ethnicity, and class. Therefore, all the contributions in this issue are concerned with the central questions: (1) What is expected of men and women in terms of transnational social protection and how do these affect gendered life chances in transnational social spaces? 2) How does this negotiation of social protection influence gender roles and (in-)equalities? (3) Do different areas of social protection, such as healthcare, childcare or financial exchanges have different gendered dynamics?

At this very moment, regimes all over the world are targeting our colleagues, keeping them from pursuing their scientific objectives. The IMISCOE Solidarity Fund for collective action aims to support these academics.
