AB  - Expatriation has been subject to divergent representations as an employment practice
increasingly associated and used to anchor the expansion of transnational productive
activities. This divergent, two-folded representation is framed, on the one hand, by
managerial perspectives that portray expatriation as a valuable resource lacking negative
consequences and as a chance to enhance one’s personal, family and professional future. In
sharp contrast, other studies portray expatriation as an ambiguous work arrangement that
may imply conflictive and contradictory consequences, and which can spark feelings of
rupture with regard to one’s personal, professional, and family past trajectory and future
plans.This presentation aims to report the results of a PhD study, where expatriation was
taken as empirical reference to enquiry contemporary transnational work and employment
practices implications. This study found that being an expatriate often implies work and life
situations that are subject to diffluent reasoning, a circumstance primarily associated with
the objective attributes used to characterize and mold expatriation as a contemporary
employment practice and work setting.In this regard, six attributes are presented as
constituting differential operators used by expatriates to position their expatriation work
experiences, to position themselves with regards to these (their) experiences, and to
present expatriation as a counterintuitive work and life condition: a sense of periodization
and cyclical nature; the remote likelihood of returning to one’s place of origin; difficulties in
finding a suitable work-life balance; the rarefaction of preexisting social bonds; exposure to
organizational rules and decisions lability; exposure to feelings of distance, uprooting and
displacement.
