Following the conference on ‘Political Remittances and Political Transnationalism: Narratives, Political Practices and the Role of the State’, held at Nuffield on 19 and 20 June 2017, conference convenors Lea Müller-Funk and Félix Krawatzek have released the first of a three part podcast series recorded at the event.

The conference gathered together an international group of researchers to Nuffield, to share perspectives on the political impact of migrants and migration. The intention of the workshop was to connect migration scholars across various disciplines including history, anthropology, political science and linguistics around a discussion of the conceptual value of the term 'political remittances' as a lens through which to approach the study of political transnationalism.
