This carefully designed Research Handbook offers a resource of nuanced discussions on some familiar topics as well as often-overlooked topics including global rainbow families, expatriate children and FIFO family life. While providing an essential theoretical understanding, each chapter also offers clear agendas for future research with theoretical insight. With a focus on insider perspectives, it successfully frames today’s family challenges in a clear and concise way.

The Research Handbook of Global Families will be useful for students and academics of such disciplines as global politics, human resource management, migration theory and sociology. It will also be an important reference point for researchers seeking up-to-date information about the nature of global family life.
Critical Acclaim
‘This excellent book illustrates the value of bridging disciplinary boundaries when it comes to studying global families. Including chapters that describe the full gamut of diverse global family experiences, and covering both traditional (e.g., expatriate family adjustment) and emerging (e.g., migrant and transnational families) topics, it highlights rigorous academic research with very real implications for individuals, families, and organizations. The volume is a must read to everyone interested in global mobility.’
– Mila Lazarova, Simon Fraser University, Canada

‘Enacting family life across two or more countries? If this question gives you pause, put this must-read Handbook on your list. Edited by Yvonne Kallane, Joanne Mutter and Heidi Collins, the Research Handbook is a rich and timely resource for anyone interested in researching the experiences of families where one or more members relocated abroad for work.’
– Maike Andresen, coordinator of the Horizon 2020 project GLOMO on global mobility of employees, University of Bamberg, Germany

‘Integrating global mobility and the work-family interface, this Research Handbook brings to life the diversity, complexities, and realities of global families. It is a compelling, thought-provoking, and interdisciplinary collection of chapters by leading scholars, and it is a valuable resource for anyone doing research on this important topic.’
– Margaret Shaffer, University of Oklahoma, US
