International Mobility and Social Stratification

Monday, 16 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC28 Social Stratification (host committee)

Language: English

This session aims to gather contributions addressing the relation between cross-border spatial mobility and social inequality. Papers may target labour and student migration, business travelling, tourism and other forms of cross-border movements as causes or consequences of social stratification. The impact of migration on social mobility, the ‘cultural capital’ effects of travelling, the re-emerging ‘local’ vs ‘cosmopolitan’ cleavage are examples of possible topics that would fit into the session. Comparative studies of the effect of out-migration and immigration on social stratification in the countries of origin and/or destination are also particularly welcome.
