Abstract (Swedish)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the responsibilities transnational Kosovo-Albanian migrants take over their older relatives.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the responsibilities transnational Kosovo-Albanian migrants take over their older relatives. To achieve our purpose, we have carried out a qualitative study in which we have had oral interviews with seven Kosovo-Albanian migrants who immigrated to Sweden in the 90s. Our theoretical starting point has been transnational migration, and we have used concepts as transnational families, financial, personal, emotional responsibility. The results of our study show that all of the Kosovo-Albanian migrants who participated in this study, took all forms of responsibility towards their elderly relatives though to different extents. The main responsibility is shown to be the financial. All participating in the study are sending money consignments to their elderly dependents to increase their standard of living in Kosovo. The emotional responsibility, however, is most intense when our interviewees can keep daily contact with their older relatives with the help of today's technology. Personal responsibility can not be taken to the same extent as the other responsibilities since the Kosovo-Albanian migrants in our study are limited as they must be present in their everyday life here in Sweden.
