Sažetak
The "transnational turn" in the study of international migration, and accompanying criticism of methodological nationalism in the social sciences, have shifted the focus from nationally bounded "social containers" to transnational social formations and processes. Ostensible ubiquity of the phenomenon of migrant transnationalism has led to its popularity as a field of study, followed by its semantic and conceptual proliferation at the beginning of the 21st century. Such developments seriously undermined the theoretical usefulness of a new concept. Unlike its more famous but less precise conceptual (pre)cursor, the concept of transnational social spaces might offer a more viable analytic tool for studying diverse migration and post-migration phenomena. At the broadest level, transnational social spaces can be defined as "sustained ties of persons, networks and organisations across the borders of multiple nation-states" at different levels of institutionalisation (Faist, 2000). We shall analyse the most significant theoretical approaches to the concept of transnational social spaces (Faist, 2000 ; Pries, 2001) or transnational social fields (Levitt and Glick Schiller, 2004) in migration studies. Based on this analysis, we shall identify the most important elements and analytic dimensions of the concept. Finally, we shall illustrate the possibilities of employing an integrated concept of transnational social spaces in the study of migration and post-migration processes in the Southeast Europe, and discuss the potential benefits of such an approach.
