New Book: FINNS ABROAD - New Forms of Mobility and Migration


Elli Heikkilä & Saara Koikkalainen (eds.):

FINNS ABROAD - New Forms of Mobility and Migration

Publisher: Institute of Migration (Series: Migration Studies C 21) - 224 pages

This edited book aims at broadening our understanding of Finnish emigration and the multitude of different types of transnational mobility that Finns engage in, which is a distinctive feature of our times. The days when entire villages in the peripheries had to contemplate international migration to a single destination as a survival strategy are long gone. Current migration from Finland is much more diverse, as people make individual choices with their own motivations for undertaking international mobility.

FINNS ABROAD – New Forms of Mobility and Migration takes you, our reader, on a trip that spans over four continents and explores different types of mobility, such as marriage and family migration, company secondments and highly-skilled migration.
