- 55 Downloads
This chapter re-contextualizes the phenomenon of Euro-commuting, then it summaries the study’s main findings, outlining the most stand-out issues to emerge from analysis of the interview transcripts with Euro-commuters and their left-behind partners. Next the chapter considers the broader implications of the research findings, before finally opening out to possible future directions research on commuting and Euro-commuters could pursue. How the bulk of Euro-commuter families represent no real departure from the normative nuclear family is stressed in terms of the study’s broader implications. As for future research directions, a comparative sectoral approach to Euro-commuting is strongly recommended.
