N2 - Labour, mobility and informality in post-socialism offers a detailed account of the multi-faceted nature of mobility within, and beyond, post-socialist spaces. Based on a large number of case studies from a variety of authors, it engages with the distinct effects mobility leads to depending on the context. It also explores the causal relationship between enhanced mobility (of people, services, capitals) in the region and the rise, existence and development of informal practices. Mobility is understood here as trans-national, and trans-regional, so that the book is an attempt to go beyond boundaries and borders, acknowledging the variety of mobilities that one can observe in the region. We acknowledge the fact that mobility, as a topic, may be interpreted in an extremely broad sense so that, while collecting our chapters, we asked our authors to construct their empirical case around the question of how mobility can generate, modify and reshape informal practices within a given context. As a result, we are able to offer a volume with: Solid empirical evidence: each chapter is written by an author with a long experience in the region and constructed on original material collected through several years of researchTheory-engaging contributions: we have asked authors to reason and start from their case study to offer their position on the relationship between mobility patterns and informal practicesAn in-depth regional perspective: the post-socialist region has often been regarded as “exporting” mobilities. We acknowledge that this has changed and that the region is at the centre of mobility flows going both ways (inflows and outflows) as well as intra-regional mobilities that can help better understanding post-socialist spaces while conceptualizing the nexus informality-mobility in a diverse and extended transitional region A significant contribution to the debates on informality, a topic that has gained consensus and interest rapidly over the past years. The post-socialist region is possibly the area where debates on informality have evolved the most (as demonstrated by the large range of authors emerging from the region and, not least, the fact that the recent Global Encyclopaedia of Informality – 2018 – was edited by a Russian studies scholar). However, debates on informality have also developed in other parts of the world so that the volume will provide a chance to further engage with them in a comparative perspective in the future, taking “Labour, Mobility and Informality” as a starting point.
