Abstract

Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Kazakhstan are all major destinations for labour migration from rural areas of southern Kyrgyzstan. Along with searching for better income, younger men and women also migrate for educational purpose, children and elderly stay behind. While older people often regard this separation from their families as temporary, younger people start putting down roots in places other than their original homes. With increasing labour mobility livelihoods are less likely to be organised in a single place and instead take on a multi-local dimension where people have responsibilities in different places and sustain networks to maintain linkages. The article provides a more nuanced understanding of how people practice and experience this increasing multi-locality and how it effects the livelihoods of men and women of different generations. Furthermore a multi-local perspective also bridges conceptual divides in rural-urban and national-international migration.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
