This stream of research is dedicated to generating empirical data on working and living abroad. Particular emphasis has been placed on exploring the experiences of expatriates and sojourners working and living in Ireland and also Irish expatriates working and living abroad.  The papers and volumes generated represent a mix of both the quantitative and the narrative and provide insights into the lives, the experiences and the frustrations of employees on foreign assignment.
