Transitions is devoted to providing a platform that explores and investigates the complexities of transient migration. It aims to map the experiences of transient migrants as they engage and interact with communities that are linked both to their home and host nations and to analyse the effects of transient migration as a global, national and communal phenomena. The journal’s  focus is on how transient migrants cope with transience and how transient migration affects individuals, communities and nations before, during and after the period of transience. By placing emphasis on transience, Transitions provides an avenue for the interpretation of temporality and unsettledness, which it considers significant and affective. Societies, communities, individuals and cultures are, thus, in a constant yet fluctuating state of transition. 

Transitions is a multi-disciplinary journal which brings together individual scholars and groups working across the Humanities and Social Services and, includes the ares of Media, Politics, Culture, History, Policy, Economy and the Creative Industries. Transitions will focus on but is not limited to themes such as belonging, identity, networks, nation, culture, religion, race and ethnicity, gender, precarity, memory, agency, community, quotidian encounters and homecoming and the roles various platforms play within these themes.
