Elli Heikkilä & Saara Koikkalainen (eds.) : FINNS ABROAD – New Forms of Mobility and Migration. Migration Studies C 21. Institute of Migration, Turku 2011, 224 s.
This edited book aims at broadening our understanding of Finnish emigration and the multitude of different types of transnational mobility that Finns engage in, which is a distinctive feature of our times. The days when entire villages in the peripheries had to contemplate international migration to a single destination as a survival strategy are long gone. Current migration from Finland is much more diverse, as people make individual choices with their own motivations for undertaking international mobility.
FINNS ABROAD – New Forms of Mobility and Migration takes you, our reader, on a trip that spans over four continents and explores different types of mobility, such as marriage and family migration, company secondments and highly-skilled migration.
