In an increasingly globalized world, mobility is a new defining feature of our lives, livelihoods and work experiences. This book is a first in utilising transnational migration studies as a new theoretical framework in management and organization studies. Ozkazanc-Pan presents a much-needed new concept for understanding people, work and organizations in a world on the move while attending to growing inequality associated with work in changing societies.

''This comprehensive and engaging book provides a valuable way in which organization studies can engage with transnational migration studies. Ozkazanc-Pan initiates a valuable theoretical conversation.'' Raza Mir, William Paterson University

"What happens when we acknowledge mobility as the natural order of the social world? How does our thinking about people, about diversity, and inequality in the workplace need to change?

Drawing on Transnational Migration Studies, the author extends an ontology of mobility for understanding possible selves under conditions of dynamic global change. Moving beyond fixed notions of identity and culture, and bringing in power and history, she demonstrates the profound ethical and epistemological implications, as well as needed change, in the ways in which difference has been theorized, researched, valued, and reproduced in the diversity and cross-cultural management fields.

Both critical and hopeful, her transnational perspective is a much-needed intervention aiming to toward a fundamental transformation in the conversation about multiculturalism and inequality in organizations." Marta B. Calás and Linda Smircich, University of Massachusetts

Joint Editor-in-Chief of the journal Gender, Work and Organization, Banu Özkazanç-Pan is Associate Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship at the University of Massachusetts and visiting Associate Professor at Brown University.
