Transnational Archipelago

Transnational Archipelago

By Luís Batalha
Book Description

The island nation of Cape Verde has given rise to a diaspora that spans the four continents of the Atlantic Ocean. Migration has been essential to the island since the birth of its nation. This volume makes a significant contribution to the study of international migration and transnationalism by exploring the Cape Verdean diaspora through its geographic diversity and with a broad thematic range.

De eilandgemeenschap Kaapverdië heeft een diaspora veroorzaakt die zo ver strekt als de vier continenten rond de Atlantische Oceaan. Sinds het ontstaan van de gemeenschap is migratie een essentieel onderdeel van het dagelijkse leven op Kaapverdië gebleken. Verbindingen met een gebied dat ver weg ligt, blijft ook vandaag de dag het dagelijkse leven op het eiland domineren. Dit boek draagt in belangrijke mate bij aan de studie naar internationale migratie en transnationalisme door de diaspora van de bewoners van Kaapverdië te onderzoeken op geografische diversiteit vanuit een breed thematisch perspectief. Transnational Archipelago is tot stand gekomen met bijdragen van twintig wetenschappers uit verschillende disciplines.
