PINTOR SANDOVAL, Renato. Habitus and Transnational Fields in the Process of Migrant Transnationalism. Migr. Inter [online]. 2011, vol.6, n.2, pp. 159-192. ISSN 1665-8906.
In his studies on transnationalism, Alejandro Portes argues that once the migration, emerging social networks between migrants and their places of origin, which over time allow the movement was sustained by itself. In addition it emphasizes that this momentum can support the continued migration even when the original economic incentives have been reduced or disappeared altogether. Furthermore, the school of sociological thought of Pierre Bourdieu argues that social processes and socioespacios created by the individual paths are not uniform, which represent a relationship of homology between the habitus that share the same position in or represent different social fields. Our analysis adheres to the second school mentioned, since it has not been widely disseminated among scholars of transnational migration.
