Multilokales Erwerbs- und Familienleben im postsozialistischen Kirgistan


Thieme, Susan (2014). Multilokales Erwerbs- und Familienleben im postsozialistischen Kirgistan. Geographische Rundschau, 66(11):40-45.

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.
