Famílias transnacionais após a grande recessão na Europa: revisão sistemática da literatura

Translated title of the contribution: Transnational families after the great recession in Europe: systematic literature review

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review



Today's socio-economic changes require a rethinking of roles and the place for the family in contexts guided by the mobility of its members. In the relationship between family members of generations who have emigrated and those who remain in the origin country, intergenerational solidarity can play an important role, promoting well-being and cohesion. The aim of this article is to carry out a systematic review around the keywords Family, Emigration and Generations, limited to European research, in the time horizon of the first half decade after the recession (between 2010 and 2015), in order to understand the main theoretical and empirical trends around this theme, when there is an intensification of migrations. All databases associated with EBSCO were used. The results suggest that there is a growing concern with the integration and educational opportunities of the youngest, second generation emigrants, but also a rethinking of the quality and interconnection of the provision of care to older family members residing in the origin country; gender issues are also an important category. We are challenged to consider the context of social collective memory that gives rise to the multiplicity of studies on the most recent European migrations.
