Abstract: In this review, we focus on recent experiments involving transport and other dynamical aspects of emulsified droplets under nonequilibrium conditions. We include both active emulsions, where individual droplets develop self-propulsion or self-sustained motion at the expense of local energy sources, and driven emulsions, where droplets are activated through the local transduction of an external source. A common theme in the reported scenarios is the use of hybrid colloidal systems, where emulsions and liquid crystals are interfaced, providing with a rich scenario that features phenomena and mechanisms not found in traditional emulsions.
