Transnational migration, citizenship and the circulation of rights and responsibilities (TRANSMIC)
The aim of this 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.
TRANSMIC is a project coordinated by Maastricht University and funded by the European Commission’s Marie Curie actions in which the International Migration Institute at ODID is a partner. This Initial Training Network will run from 1 September 2014 to 31 August 2018.
