LULLE AND R. KING into account a complex reconfiguration of rights, responsibilities, participation, and identity (Delanty 2000: 126). The notion of flexibility of citizenship (Ong 1999), especially the flexible economic citizenship which comes from living, working, and having pension rights in different places, creates an inherent spatiality of older people’s and soon-to-be pensioners’ working lives and their international mobility trajectories. This both gives us a chance to incorporate the important aspect of paid work and the ability to secure independent income as a crucial component of economic citizenship (Patrick 2012), and also enables us to interpret how this played a role in women’s lives in post-socialism, in cases when they became unemployed, or chose domestic life as an ideal version of womanhood in post-Soviet Latvia (Novikova 2006; Lulle 2014b).
