According as the recent developments, the notion ‘mobility’ has affected many concepts as well as leading to emergence of new concepts. As a rapidly growing field, transnationalism in migration studies is a prevalent concept in order to explain in which ways migration has recently been more fluid and flexible, owing to new developments of communication and transportation. Transnationalism, albeit a multidimensional concept, emphasizes the features, which exceeds the boundaries of nation states, of migration policies and migrant experiences. In this context, transnational social fields and transnational spaces have come to refer to a phenomenon in which social, and to a great extent, individual elements come together, and the influence of nation state upon migration have diminished with time. However, nation states have adapted to the new situation that globalization brought about. The mutation of the concepts of diaspora and diaspora spaces stands as great examples. This paper acknowledges transnational spaces and diaspora spaces as diverse parts of a whole, and examines the diasporic feature of Turkish supplementary schools in London. It also aims to point out both that nation states have adapted to new conditions which have been constituted by globalization, and that they still continue to influence the formation of identity of the migrants.
