Abstract: Today, the complexity of migration as a contemporary and global phenomenon reveals the variety of its national and regional realities along with the related historical background that defines and frames it. In Europe, the altering of the shape of migration that took place since the end of 1980s largely contributed to its re-conceptualization in the light of a new globalized, diversified and highly politicized environment. In this context the notions of integration and transnationalism have gained a prominent role in understanding the multiple trajectories of migrants. Cross-border movements as well as the emerging multicultural mosaic of the urban environment now seem to be permanent features of European societies.

With this problem in mind, this presentation will address the patterns of interaction between integration and transnationalism under specific context-bound national and local conditions and see how they shape the dynamics of migration trajectories of Albanian migrants. The aim is to investigate the interaction of processes related to integration and transnationalism and to identify the conditions under which these processes may affect each other. It will do so by applying a comparative cross-national and cross-local perspective, focusing on two (receiving) countries that represent different migration and integration regimes, Greece and Austria, particularly focusing on two local metropolitan areas: Athens and Vienna.
