Abstract

This chapter reviews the current state-of-the-art of academic literature that examines various forms of commuting. In particular, it summarizes scholarly contributions that examine those who commute nationally and internationally, over both short and longer distances. It shows that research into commuting and the subsequent long-distance relationships gives rise to emerging of two main disciplinary traditions: family studies and migration studies. Both these bodies of work are reviewed to consider what insights they offer for this study of Euro-commuters.
