SOBCZYK, Rita; SORIANO MIRAS, Rosa  and  CABALLERO CALVO, Andrés. Localized Transnationalism: The Paradoxes of Migration in the Age of Involuntary Immobility. Migr. Inter [online]. 2020, vol.11, e1838.  Epub Oct 02, 2020. ISSN 2594-0279.

This study analyzes the phenomenon of “localized transnationalism.” The concept refers to the prolonged and intense maintenance of cross-border connections by migrants whose capacity for geographic mobility is very limited. The study is based on ethnographic research which focused on Senegalese migrants in southern Spain. The results contribute to the debate on transnationalism by providing empirical evidence which demonstrates that migrants can engage in transnational practices even if they are excluded, due to administrative and economic obstacles, from transnational mobility.

Keywords : localized transnationalism; Senegalese; Islam; religion; Spain.
