Iceland has increasingly been tangled in a dense network of various mobilities, leading to the growing transnational character of Icelandic society. This means that Iceland is involved in and affected by different forms of exchange and flows of ideas, capital, objects and people: emigration, immigration; involving foreign workers, refugees, human trafficking, business trips, educational and cultural transfer, and tourism.
This edited volume brings together researchers focusing on Icelandic society from the per- spective of mobility and transnational connections. The chapters are based on inter- disciplinary research bringing in different ways highlighting the complex implications of mobilities and transnationalism for the Icelandic state, institutions, society and culture.
