Abstract

Over the past decades the migration-welfare nexus has gained a new speed in politics across the globe. In the context of increased mobility, state actors and civil society representatives at the local, national and supranational levels have attempted to manage and regulate the social protection demands of mobile individuals. Yet, designed policies and schemes are not always adequate to cover for the needs of vulnerable mobile groups and are often confronted with implementation gaps. In this context, migrants have sought to safeguard their social rights while on the move, by either demanding better policies from their host countries and homelands, or by relying on the informal social protection sector, such as solidarity networks, family members, etc. These different strategies create a transnational social protection amalgam across borders and governmental levels, and which interweaves formal and informal practices. This panel aims to contribute to the understanding of the circulation of social protection strategies designed at all governmental levels and at the individual level from a comparative perspective. It particularly welcomes (but it is not limited to) contributions that further develop the role of home/host countries and migrants as social protection providers.
