Abstract:
This thesis examines the links and dynamics between internal and international migration within the context of migration and development from the perspective of an origin country, Albania. My analysis is based on material collected during 2005-06 through a multi-sited and multi-method approach, the backbone of which were 150 in-depth interviews with migrants and their families. The interviews were undertaken in a cluster of four villages of origin in rural south-east Albania, and three urban areas of destination in Albania and Greece. Using the theoretical notion of intra- and trans-national social fields, which has migrants at its centre and includes the constellation of their social relations across multiple internal and international destinations, I was able to understand their lives and migration experiences in less fragmented ways.
