In today’s globalized world, where the foundations of home and social security are destabilized due to wars and neoliberal transformations, the villagers of Kosovo are linked with a common locality despite living across borders. By tracing long-distant family relations with a special focus on cross-border marriages, the book which will be presented looks at the reconfiguration of care relations, gender and generational roles among kin-members of Kosovo, who now live in different European states.

Carolin Leutloff-Grandits, PD Dr. phil., is a social anthropologist and a senior researcher at the interdisciplinary Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION at the European University Viadrina. She conducts research on migration, borders, social security, care and family and is particularly concerned with the countries of the former Yugoslavia and with Germany, including the former inner-German border region. Currently, Carolin works on a Leibniz-funded project on migrant entrepreneurs and the nexus of migration and development in Kosovo. Beside her recent monograph (below), she published “Claiming Ownership in Postwar Croatia. The Dynamics of Property Relations and Ethnic Conflict in the Knin Region” (Lit 2007) and recently edited the special section on the Balkans as “Double Transit Space”  in the Journal for Borderlands Studies (2023).
