There has been increased attention on the variety of global employees during the past decades. However, studies on global families remain relatively scarce, divergent and poorly organized. In this review, we define the term ‘global family’ and summarize the literature using a 2 x 2 typology that reflects the traditional and non-traditional forms of global employment and family structures. Based on our review, we offer an agenda for future research on the role and experiences of global families.
