Social identity is a person’s sense of who they are based on their group membership(s). Tajfel () proposed that the groups (e.g. social class, family, football team etc.) which people belonged to were an important source of pride and self-esteem.

Building on key concepts from the social sciences and migration studies, such as identity, integration and transnationalism, the author links these with emerging theoretical notions, such as mobility, translocality and cosmopolitanism.

Ethnic identities, transnational ties and integration pathways of the youngsters and adults are compared.
