Abstract: While transnational migration has been widely lauded, examination of its effects remains exclusive to particular destinations within the migration regime. In Singapore, the emergence of skilled Chinese new immigrants has brought about social attention. However, studies on immigrants’ perspective and implications of their transnational identity remain limited. Through the critical examination of migrant individuals, home and host countries, and state-migrant relations, this thesis is guided by three research questions: (1) How do immigrants view their own identity; (2) How do new immigrants make sense of state-migrant relationships; and (3) What are the factors implicated in new immigrants’ integration into their choice destination. This thesis argues that new immigrants in Singapore negotiate their roles between their home and host countries. By illuminating their positions of being on the receiving ends of both countries’ policies and influences, this thesis thereby highlights that transnational migration outcomes are not inherent in a single location, but are a result of migrant individuals’ interactive responses towards states’ policies and discourses when they interface with both home and host countries
