Title Embedded movement : Senegalese transcontinental migration and gender identity
Author(s) Jerve Ramsøy, Ingrid
Date 2014
Editor(s) Fernández, Christian; Righard, Erika
English abstract
The migration project taking place between Senegal and Spain is shaped by structural factors in both countries, as well as the gendered (re-) production of identity, making migration a process of global connections and ‘embeddedness’ of economic action in social relations and institutions. Data gathered through ethnographic fieldwork in both Spain and Senegal is examined so as to elucidate how migration is a complex movement in a social landscape where gender, generation, household, kinship, and social networks are shaping the agent’s position within the Senegalese socio-economic structure.
