The global financial and economic crisis as well as post-socialist transition means a similar general framework for socioeconomic and spatial development in different countries. Their migration systems react in different ways on such externally caused incidents, even in slightly comparable contexts. Consequences are, among others, increasing migrations and mutual interactions between sending and receiving countries as well as strong linkages of international migrations and internal migratory movements – phenomena we usually refer to as transnationalism. Against this backdrop, the aim of the paper is to stress the “regional element” of transnationalism. Thus, we suggest to broadening the concept of transnationalism with a new transregional perspective in order to strengthen the spatial issue in migration studies.
