Migrants, both spatially and mentally, longer settle in only one national territory but interact or move across borders regularly, profoundly challenging the nation-state and the image of society as a container. This volume explores the ways in which migrants connect social worlds across national boundaries through a variety of social practices, and how they maintain agency in situations where their capacity to act is constrained by nation-states and their borders.
