Transnational Lives, Mobility and Gender research group at ICS-ULisboa combines the expertise of researchers from different countries and scientific areas (economics, geography, African studies, sociology, and development studies). The multi-disciplinary nature of the team members is a very important element taking into account the complex and multi-dimensional nature of the research programme through a transnational perspective.
