Abstract: This article explores an alternative form of transnationalism initiated and promoted by states, transnationalism from within, seeking to redress the tendency to counterpose transnationalism to the state in much of the transnationalism literature. First, this article critically reviews both state-centrists’ arguments and transnationalists’ claims by bringing to the fore the transformation of states. Second, it proposes the concept of the transnational nation (TNN) to describe states whose governments serve as active agents and mediators of transnational movements and whose societies experience internal transnationalization. Finally, the major characteristics of transnational nations are identified through a case study of Korea. Focusing on the relation of the state to transnational dynamics, this study illustrates various ways that state generates and sustains the transnational flows.

Cross-national comparison of ethnic minority groups’ transnational involvement and political participation on the national ground" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Eighteenth International Conference of the Council for European Studies, Various University Venues, Barcelona, Spain, Jun 20, 2011 <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p484795_index.html>

Abstract: This article examines the ways in which autochthonous minorities and migrants engage in transnational networks that connect them to similar groups in different nation-states and to supranational organizations, such as the European Union, the Council of Europe, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. The comparison of transnational linkages fostered by diverse ethnic minorities and migrant groups allows to explore whether the activism in transnational spaces shapes minorities’ political strategies when acting on the national ground. Following the literature on transnational networks that suggests that the ties that cut across state boundaries may open up access to different sorts of capital otherwise unavailable to ethnic groups, this article looks at distinct minority actors in selected Western and Eastern European states to examine whether ethnic leaders seize on economic and symbolic resources available through transnational networks. Second, this study explores whether the embeddedness in transnational networks enhances minorities’ political participation in respective home countries. Moreover, adopting a cross-national comparative perspective, this research helps to explore how different discursive and political opportunity structures at the national and city levels channel the diffusion and impact of transnational resources on minority groups’ action.

Abstract: Conceptions of TN within the immigration field it seems to unite around the notion that the lives of immigrants are increasingly tied to both sending and receiving societies, states, economies, and cultures. The question remains can non-migrant members of the host-community practice TN? The growing body of literature on transnational collective action (TNCA) shows that non-migrant members of the host-community can be TN activists. The literature on TNCA, however, gives us little empirical theorization as to role of migrants in TNCA campaigns. This paper argues that by considering the case study Latin American and U.S. TNCA we can begin to build a theory of TN takes the variety of practices, actors, and effects into account. This would strengthen both immigration and collective action transnational studies. For immigration scholars a more direct engagement with TNCA scholars would highlight the fact that non-migrant members of the host community can engage in transnational political struggles. Thus, more fully addressing the impact of TN beyond the migrant’s immediate community and showing that host community members can become transnational activists. By placing studies of TNCA in dialogue with scholarship on migrant TN, we will be able to go beyond the mention of migrants in TNCA and begin to theorize their role in fostering these movements. Using Latin America as a case study gives us valuable insights into the roots of transnationalism both as a tool of migrants, outcome of migration, and as an important node in TN collective action network formation.

Abstract: Why does it remain so difficult for states to anticipate and control the activities of transnational crime organizations (TCOs)? In this essay I suggest that one reason why TCOs have proven so intractable is that policy designers do not fully appreciate the aspirations of these organizations. Specifically the prevailing model of TCOs is based on 'outside in' logic, or deductive reasoning about TCOs observable actions. This approach offers that TCOs aspire simply to gain illicit profit. In turn, national and international anti-crime measures are designed to manage TCOs by policing markets. In contrast, I argue that TCOs can have more complex aspirations, ones that could not be interrupted by market policing measures. To make this case I analyze one TCO?the Colombian-Mexican TCO?ethnographically or as a discursive practice. This 'inside out' inquiry probes the constitutive social logic of that organization as TCO members experience it to reveal that beyond mere profit-seeking aspirations, the CMTCO aspires to fulfill specific values and principles. Indeed, they even undertake criminal activities specifically in pursuit of those goals. Where they do, they are not 'just businesses' but transnational criminal political associations. And where they do, TCOs will easily evade the market policing anti-crime measures that states currently favor. Thus toward the end of a more satisfying track record at managing TCOs, analysts might do well to take the constitutive discursive practices of these organizations more seriously.

Abstract: In this paper, I focus on the stories of two grassroots activists from Chihuahua City, Mexico, and their transition from having no knowledge about human rights to becoming important transnational advocates and legal activists as part of the Ni Una Más campaign to combat the misogynous murders of women, known as feminicidios, and their impunity. The aim of this paper is to illustrate the need to go beyond vernacularization as a framework to understand how international law matters in local contexts and to acknowledge the agency of grassroots actors in the international mobilization of law. The paper incorporates interview data with grassroots activists from Chihuahua City and materials documenting these activists’ advocacy and involvement in transnational legal activism. The paper shows that through their simultaneous involvement in transnational legal activism and transnational advocacy, grassroots actors became human rights defenders and active participants in extending the meaning of women’s human rights to understand the responsibility of the Mexican state for gendered violence in Chihuahua as feminicidio.
