The Transnational Lives, Mobility and Gender network (TL network) has been formalized in Lisbon in 2010 as the principal result of the ESF Exploratory Workshop held at Institute of Social Sciences – University of Lisbon (ICS-UL).

All the academic researchers in the TL network are interested in the numerous aspects of transnational living and recognize how people, goods, money and ideas move across national boundaries engendering changes in relationships between individuals and institutions.

The TL network proposes an innovative approach and topic with a potential impact on transnationalism studies to reinforce the scientific background in this area whose principal impact is to consider the multiples effects of mobility in the individuals in the contemporary world.
