This book aims to address this neglect in the European context with concentration on the UK case. Conceptually, This book explores the meanings of diaspora and whether this is an appropriate concept to refer to Latin American migration to Europe in particular. It also examines the utility of transnationality and transmigration as useful in explaining and assessing the realities of the movement of Latin Americans around the world. The book provides important conceptual discussions of some key themes in relation to Latin American migrants in general, such as poverty, negotiating institutions, family life and domestic service and mainly in relation to the European context. Perhaps most importantly in terms of the state of current knowledge on the topic, it uncovers the lives of Latin American migrants in the UK, which have remained largely hidden to date.
From the Publisher:
This book is the first edited collection on Latin American migration to Europe, with a specific focus on the United Kingdom. The collection brings together a group of established and emerging scholars from various disciplines who have been forging new paths of research on Latin Americans. Conceptually, the book explores the broader relevance of notions of transnationalism, diaspora, and integration among Latin Americans in Europe. The chapters examine a range of issues, such as the role of transnational families, political and religious transnationalism, intergenerational and gendered wellbeing among migrants, gender-based violence, place-based identities, labor market experiences, and super-diversity.
