Brief Introduction

BRIEF BIO

Elaine Lynn-Ee Ho is Associate Professor at the Department of Geography and Senior Research Fellow at the Asia Research Institute (ARI), National University of Singapore. She is also currently Assistant Dean (FASS Research Division) and she chairs the faculty-level FASS Migration Cluster. Her research addresses how citizenship is changing as a result of multi-directional migration flows in the Asia-Pacific. She is author of Citizens in Motion: Emigration, Immigration and Re-migration Across China's Borders (2019, Stanford University Press). The monograph conceptualises the spatial complexity and temporal co-evalness of migration, and further advances theorisation of co-ethnic and inter-ethnic relations. She has published widely on diaspora engagement and is now extending her research to two new domains: (1) transnational ageing and care in the Asia-Pacific, and (2) internal displacement at the China-Myanmar border, focusing on border im/mobilities, diaspora action and transnational aid. Elaine is Editor of Social and Cultural GeographySection Editor of the 2nd edition of the International Encyclopedia of Human Geography; and serves on the editorial boards of Citizenship Studies; Emotions, Society and Space; and Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography

Current Research

(1) Transnational Relations, Ageing and Care Ethics (TRACE)

Ministry of Education (Singapore) Tier 2 grant, since 2018

Our research considers care circulations with a focus on how transnational relations, ageing and care ethics (TRACE) extend across national borders. We investigate how global care circulations mediate experiences of ageing and what this means for transnational relations and care ethics. Increasingly, older adults are moving across national borders to provide care or to receive care; also participating in such care circulations are younger transnational migrants who are family members of those older adults or who have been employed to care for older adults. The TRACE project considers three interrelated aspects of care circulation: (1) grandparenting migration; (2) caring for the aged and the left-behind care chains of foreign carers; and (3) retirement migration. The project focuses on Singapore as a hub where the logics of care mediate migration inflows and outflows, connecting the country to regional sites of care such as Myanmar and China, which we have identified for study. Our project also sets Singapore in international comparative perspective with Australia, which experiences similar care-mediated migration trends that connect the country to China. This project thus considers regional care connections as well as international comparisons of ageing and care. We combine qualitative research methods with GIS analysis and visualisation to spatially depict and deepen understanding of ageing. Our mixed methods approach enables the project to integrate analyses of micro-mobility and macro-mobility, developing a grounded understanding of care relations that is useful for (re)conceptualising care ethics in transnational contexts

(2) Forced migration in/of Asia: Geographies of humanitarianism

Ministry of Education (Singapore) Tier 1 grant, since 2017

The drivers, processes and outcomes of South-South displacement demand policy and academic attention that will address the blind spots of the international refugee regime, which originated and evolved from the concerns of Global North countries towards refugee flows and resettlement. This project situates displacement at the China-Myanmar border in the wider context of forced migration histories and current trends in Asia. The project considers in particular the case of internal displacement at the China-Myanmar border, focusing on border im/mobilities, diaspora action and transnational aid. The project deepens conceptualisation of the solidarity processes that extend across national borders to bridge people of different social positionings.

(3) "Contemporaneous migration": conceptualising multidirectional migration routes

This research agenda brings together analyses of multidirectional migration routes as they converge in a national territory or forge interconnections across global space. It departs from conventional approaches that study migration sites in isolation or as snapshots in time.  Contemporaneous migration directs us toward examining how temporal periodisation structures migration and the citizenship constellations that are forged across migration sites, shaping the lives of citizens in motion. My earlier research considered the global connections that bridge China with immigrant-receiving societies such as Singapore and Canada, as well as China's own transformation from an emigrant to immigrant-receiving society. I am keen to explore how the multidirectionality of migration can be analysed in a variety of research contexts to extend conceptualisations of citizenship and territory, ethnicity, and the co-constitution of time and space.
