The approaches to address it, both from the research and even from the political and media angle or viewpoint, are diverse and not without controversy: emigration, exile, young entrepreneurs, etc. The objective of this article is to unde...

Desde 2008 se produjo una reducción de las entrad...

Project
The purpose of this project is the analysis of the recent upsurge in emigration from Spain to European destinations within the wider context of the major shift in the Spanish migratory cycle. We assume a perspective that considers the articulation of individual and family strategies altogether with the work and academic career as the main explanatory element of migratory projects. An inquiry into the emergence of a political transnational community is also considered. The research will be conducted following a double comparative perspective: a) between two groups of emigrants: the ‘autochthonous’ Spaniards, on the one hand, and the persons related to the former process of immigration to Spain (either as protagonists, thus re-emigrants, or as their descendants of 1.5 or second generations), on the other hand: and, b) in three destination countries: United Kingdom, France, and Germany, which excel statistically in these emigrants’ preferences.
Project
The main aim of this research project is to analyse ‘crossed mobilities’ within the framework of transnational dynamics and globalisation. Our focus is on the context of the change in Spain’s migratory cycle in the wake of the 2008 economic crisis, adopting a gender and intergenerational based approach. Furthermore, and moving beyond the macro-structural impact of globalisation on population flows, we consider individual and family resilience strategies employed by both immigrants in Spain and Spanish origin emigrants in Europe. By ‘crossed mobilities’ we refer to the following: 1) the articulation between geographic and social mobility; 2) the crossing of mobilities between various social actors, differentiated by gender (men/women), generation (grandparents, parents, children) and country of origin (the mobility of immigrants in Spain and new Spanish mobilities); 3) as well as the articulation between mobility and immobility. Our objectives fall within the framework of scientific debate on the following issues: 1) gender and transnationalism and 2) the shift in Spain’s migratory cycle. The methodology will be based on quantitative techniques, based on the exploitation of secondary sources (mainly PMH, EPA, MCVL, EVR and PERE), as well as qualitative techniques, essentially multi-sited ethnography (in-depth interviews and family life histories). The study will begin with fieldwork carried out in Spain (Catalonia, Madrid, Valencia and Galicia), working with immigrant families (Senegalese, Chinese, Argentinian, Brazilian and Ecuadorian), as well as with the relatives of Spanish emigrants in the UK and France. Fieldwork will also be carried out with the family members of immigrants to Spain in their countries of origin (AArgentina, Brazil and Ecuador), as well as with Spanish emigrants in the UK and France.
