Transnational Migration, Citizenship and the Circulation of Rights and Responsibilities (TRANSMIC)


‘Transnational Migration, Citizenship and the Circulation of Rights and Responsibilities’ (TRANSMIC) is a project funded under the European Commission’s Marie Curie actions. This Initial Training Network will run from 1 September 2014 to 31 August 2018. The aim of the project is to contribute to the understanding of transnational migration, in particular by looking at the conditions for and effects of transnational migration, possibilities for the mobility of migrants’ rights to be enhanced, and the links between migration, citizenship, and migration and development.
In the framework of the TRANSMIC project, the Centre of Migration Research is responsible for a supervision of one Ph.D. researcher working on a project titled “Temporalities of Irregular Migration: the case of Moldovan female domestic workers in Italy” looking at transnational practices of mobile workers coming from one of the most important migrant sending countries in Europe.
The TRANSMIC project is coordinated by Maastricht University (The Netherlands), and also includes as partner institutions the universities of Liège (Belgium), Minho (Portugal), Oxford (UK), Aix-Marseille (France), Tampere (Finland) and Warsaw (Poland), as well as the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels.
