[Extract] The globalized world is one of migration and transnational location, There are different explanations of why people move: to seek better economic opportunities and lifestyles; to find employment; natural disasters, human atrocities including persecution, war, torture, and violence; family-kinship-marriage; and a vision to create a better society (Bretell and Hollifield 2000), Whatever the reason for migration, the nature of global migration allows people to occupy transnational spaces, that is, to go back and forth between their 'homelands' and forge new links within the setting to which they have migrated (Babacan 2009).
