Transnationalism is a phenomenon closely related to globalization, contemporary migrations, civilization and technological progress. Grzegorz Babinski defines transmigrants and transnationals as people living temporarily in country different than the country of origin. Such persons maintain wide and intensive contacts with their home country as well as unchanged ethnic/national identity. Specific changes in the life styles, perception of others and self, approaches to the issues such as work, friendship and family life are caused by the suspension of migrants between fatherland and the place of migration. This factor leads them to the confrontation of their behavior, habits and values with new experiences. However these issues don't cause the assimilation (traditional result of migration) and changes to essential values. These problems are being discussed by the authoress, who conducted an ethnographic research among German businessmen community in Poznan.divisions.
