Katie Wright explores how human wellbeing is constructed and how it 'travels' across spatial boundaries. She draws on empirical research, undertaken with Peruvian migrants based in London and Madrid and their Peru-based relatives and close friends to explore how human wellbeing is constructed and how it 'travels' transnationally.

'This innovative book by Katie Wright provides a much needed new perspective on the interrelations between international migration, development and wellbeing. It manages to skillfully combine fascinating empirical insights from the lives of migrants with a new conceptual approach to international migration that focuses on human wellbeing. This book will appeal to a very wide audience of migration and development scholars and serves as a major contribution to contemporary understandings of the experiences of international migrants.' - Professor Cathy McIlwaine, Queen Mary, University of London, UK. 'This rich comparative and multi-sited investigation of international migration goes beyond the narrow focus of traditional economic perspectives, providing a holistic and perceptive approach that foregrounds migrants' understandings of and quest for wellbeing and happiness.' - Professor Manuel A. Vasquez, University of Florida, USA.
