This Special Issue addresses the lacunas in two sets of related literature: one on divorces, in general, and the other on divorces in transnational families (also called in this Issue “transnational divorce”). Through “transborder intersectionality” (i.e., a combination of transnational and intersectional perspectives), it examines five empirically grounded case studies that analyze the experiences of transnational couples involving migrants from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. These case studies unveil the dominant elements and forces that shape the lives of the separating or divorced couples in their cross-border social spaces: norms (social and legal), networks (transnational family support and local social ties), and intersecting categories (gender, social class, and legal status among others).
