Transnational communities and governance

Abstract : The dichotomy of Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft, as coined originally by Ferdinand Tönnies, has profoundly shaped the use of the concept of “community” in the social sciences (Tönnies 2002 [1897]).

It also conjures up geography and bounded space, local connectedness and physical proximity. [First paragraph]
