TransLoKal comprises the Action Research projects via two main Services: Publisher activity (Publications), invigorating training and entrepreneurial interventions (Projects).


The objectives of TransLoKal – Academic Entrepreneurship of Policy Making are:

  • From the point of view of social innovation and transformation, to carry out, share and disseminate direct real impact and applied academic research among stakeholders.
  • The mission of TransLoKal is: To ADAPT the content produced in very diverse locations around the world and bring it to the Basque society while introducing ourselves and EXCHANGING our contribution to globalized issues in some other locations. TransLoKal aims to play as an on-going publishing bridge by re-mixing locally contextualized projects and newly generated knowledge.
  • TransLoKal wishes to bring the Basque Country and the international community together without falling into the trap of a subconscious relationship of classical domination. TransLoKal wishes to contact two local points, two towns, two neighbourhoods, and two kinds of smallness in a seamless context. “Less is More” as smaller is bigger. Both are then seen from a Basque perspective and both are achieved in two directions at the same level rather than in a single, horizontal manner.
  • The first book as a new publishing house, is “PostIndependentzia > #HanIzanikHonaGara” (www.PostIndependence.org). The establishment of the publishing house gave rise to the book, which henceforth aims to help spread the content, philosophy, and orientation as detailed in the book. Hence, TransLoKal aims to become a witness of current projects that are in permanent interaction with the international reality.

Translocality consists of a multi-scalar repertoire of connections
between #Here and #There that span across imaginations, practices and affects.
Brickell & Datta, 2011
We want to imagine, instead, community as a process of coming into the world,
a process in which people work out both the value of face-to-face relations
and the limits on those relations
Bauman, 2000
It still matter where you belong, but how you belong now matter just as much.
Sutherland, 2012
Being grounded is not necessarily about being fixed;
being mobile is not necessarily about being detached
Brickell & Datta, 2011
There is only one way to understand another culture. Living it.
Høeg, 2005
