Transnational Solidarity Organisations with Asian and non-Asian Migrants in Eight European Countries: Searching for the Commons
With migration waves from Asia increasing in the past decade, numerous studies focus on how civil society organizations have responded. However, there is a lack of systematic research on the solidarity approach different organizations follow and whether specific types of solidarity approaches are related to constituency groups of Asian origin. Using primary systematic data from the TransSOL (EC Horizon 2020) research project, the paper first examines specific organizational features (such as activities, aims, etc.) of Transnational Solidarity Organizations (TSOs) aiming to support migrants (among them Asian) in eight European countries. Moreover, the chapter investigates the main solidarity approaches (top-down, bottom-up or mutual-help oriented) and the values adopted by TSOs addressing the needs of constituency groups from Asia and those catering to the needs of non-Asian constituency groups. The indicative findings aim to shed light on distinct features of commons among TSOs supporting Asian and non-Asian migrant groups across European contexts.
