5-6 July 2016 - CPC was delighted to host the second workshop of the International Network on Transnational Families at the University of St Andrews.
The International Network on Transnational Families (INTF) brings together an international group of researchers working on transnational families in different parts of the world. Its aim is to promote collaboration and develop comparative studies. The inaugural meeting was held at the University of Maastricht in July 2015, when 15 invited participants discussed their work and drew up plans for comparative analyses using data from two or more world regions. Preliminary results were discussed at the second workshop, with a view to publishing a collection of journal papers. New participants also had the opportunity to introduce their work and the group discussed further collaborations.
Prior to the workshop CPC Co-Director Elspeth Graham said "We are greatly looking forward to welcoming delegates to the second workshop here in Scotland to consider our initial findings and to develop proposals for future comparative studies."
