Studies in this book have been gathered on the occasion of two academic events in the field of Transnational Families, focusing on the Eastern-European space, from a – diversified – qualitative social research perspective. The volume places a special emphasis on a gendered and practice-oriented approach, exploring territories of domination and empowerment that inform the negotiation of difference. Studies follow processes of emancipation, family practices, redistribution of gendered roles, forms of abuse, social remittance, confrontation between rights and cultures, forming joint action strategies and egalitarian capital, in a process of emergence of new social actors. Studies reflect back upon the ambiguity of conceptual frameworks to be put to use while approaching this yet unexplored area.

Partitioned Paternity: Models of Cross-Border Fathering in Ukrainian Transnational Families
Abstract The paper identifies the impact of migration and transnationalism on paternity practices of Ukrainian migrant men departing from the theory of “responsible fathering”. A concept of “fatherhood dividends” is offered. 3 models of fathering are distinguished: “check-pay fathers” (high degree of paternal responsibility), “re-emerging fathers” (moderate degree of paternal responsibility) and “waning fathers” (low degree of paternal responsibility).
