Resum

© Federación Española de Sociología. This article presents a theoretical approach to the study of the mobilities that emerged in the light of the challenges posed by globalisation and the financial crisis and that we have termed 'crossed mobilities'. The proposal posits that family geographical mobility strategies form part of a global social mobility strategy that includes the non-mobility of certain members. In addition, it explores the relation between social and geographical crossed mobility and gender order. Intergenerationality is a further key dimension that addresses the various generations that comprise the family and the migratory field. In contrast to a finalistic and fixed vision of (social and geographic) mobility, 'crossed mobility' is based on a theoretical-methodological approach that considers migration as a process that integrates and involves subjects with diverse objectives, positions, resources and capitals that lead them to construct varying trajectories and itineraries.
