Women in Diplomacy: Their Private Transnational Practices

The paper concerns women in diplomacy observed through the anthropological perspective of migrants’ transnational practices. It focuses on the transnational practices of women in diplomacy that include efforts to establish and maintain the everyday normality of their own choices in their temporary place of living. Shifting attention from less privileged to multiply privileged transnational migrants enables potential insights into the similarities of their practices of negotiating normality by the means of objects and ways of communication in different places of everyday life.
KEY WORDS: diplomacy, transnational migration, women, practices, objects
