Transnational Flows

Territorial borders often cut across social, linguistic, and cultural ties, meaning the communities situated there can be ideal conduits for the flow of people, goods and ideas that cross-border conflicts are reliant upon.

To understand how and why these flows exist, we must understand the interests that they represent and the relationships between involved actors. Research into the migration, diaspora networks, and other channels that unite borderland communities can shed light on the topic.

Below you can find and download publications by XCEPT partners that break down how transnational flows are created, and how they interact with cross-border conflicts.
