dc.description.abstract This chapter employs the concept of transnational social space to examine Central Asian female migrants’ relationship with the law in Russia. Through exploring life stories of four migrant women, we examine the formation of transnational social spaces for labour migrants in Russia from the perspective of gender. The results demonstrate the significance of the tradition and practices of the sending countries in the formation of Central Asian female migrants’ transnational social spaces and subsequent legal choices in Russia. We raise the question regarding agency-focused transnationalism as an overarching perspective in the study of labour migrants in Russia. The revolving door migration between Central Asia and Russia, a lack of social capital and financial resources, their dependent position within migrant communities and strict family traditions limit the real agency of many female migrants, which the concept of transnational social space assumes. We argue that vulnerable migrant groups such as women often do not fit into transnationalism, informality or legal culture narratives without taking into account the specificities of the female experience. en
