Immigrant women from non-western countries carry different but inter-related aspects of their identity, rooted in their background. They experience their daily lives in the host society of the western country in their own way. Since every daily experience is rooted in a physical setting, the repetition and regular occurrence of the experience in the place leads to the process of place attachment, belonging and rootedness. Founding on an extensive fieldwork study drawing from my doctoral study, in this presentation, I will discuss different positions of eight Afghan immigrant women who live in Auckland in relation to their sense of attachment to different places in the global city. The results of the study show how Afghan immigrant women interact within their geographies of encounter which are also known as transnational social spaces in Auckland. The concluding remarks propose a specific approach for research and practice to understand difference in contemporary global cities.
