The Transnational  Project

The Transnational Project

University of Chicago, USA


Transnational flows of capital, people, information and images are transforming our worlds; they are also challenging researchers to develop new theoretical and methodological practices to study and account for them. The TransNationalism Project takes on this challenge. An interdisciplinary research group of faculty and students under the direction of Saskia Sassen, Ralph Lewis Professor of Sociology, the TNP aims to foster collaborative and innovative research into these dynamics through the development of new theoretical perspectives and methodological frameworks. Toward this end, the TNP provides several forums -- workshops, an annual conference, and informal discussion groups -- for junior scholars studying transnational flows and processes.

The Transnationalism Project's current research projects are the following:

  • Global Governance - The multiplication of cross-border governance mechanisms: implications for democracy and global order, and
  • Migration - The interdisciplinary study of international migration, conducted in conjunction with the Human Rights Program
