    TRANSNATIONAL SPACES FROM ABOVE - THE ROLE OF INSTITUTIONS IN PROMOTING HIGHLY SKILLED LABOUR MIGRATION FROM INDIA TO SWEDEN2014In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 105, no 5, 511-525 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The global network economy involves intensive interactions and flows between places. In this paper, we define a theoretical framework of labour migration in the global economy in which we propose the importance of transnational spaces from above and how formal organisations develop networks for migration processes. This theoretical framework is employed on an empirical study that investigates the increasing flows of highly-skilled labour migration from India to Sweden within the ICT-sector. The paper illustrates how transformations and acting in formal institutions in the political and private sectors have a strong impact on the transnational migration of highly-skilled labour. By integrating theories from migration studies, institutional theory and economic geography the theoretical framework has been able to conceptualise factors that are less visible in migration studies from below. Thereby this paper contributes to a more multi-sided understanding of transnational migration processes.

    Re-Reading Time-Geography from a Gender Perspective: Examples from Gendered mobility2012In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 103, no 5, 584-600 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on qualitative research on commuting and womens everyday lives. In the project Re-reading time-geography from a feminist perspective, labour force mobility is an important way of analysing womens time-space use and identifying the constraints experienced when organising everyday life. We claim that time-geography provides a useful set of analytical tools that successfully collaborate with social science theory such as gender studies. Time-geography has been questioned by feminists as well as others. However, we argue that time-geography could provide gender studies with a close, empathic and micro-levelled interventional approach that makes obstacles and constraints due to spatio-temporal conditions visible and thereby changeable. In this paper we use results from previous research to prove that time-geography is an approach with several sets of useful concepts that describe and analyse womens everyday struggles and possibilities in an era in which mobility and transport have become undisputed factors of everyday life. In order to do this, time-geography needs to be read from a gendered standpoint. Although we are still in the formative stages of this re-reading of original texts and the formation of additional sets of concepts, the indications are that this work is worth pursuing and expanding.
