Chapter 14: Bolivian migrants in Spain: transnational families from a gender perspective

Sònia Parella

Extract

According to Basch et al. (1994, p. 238), ‘family processes and relations between people defined as kin constitute the initial foundation for all other types of transnational social relations’. Migratory flows generate micro-social processes that require families to make adjustments over time and across space within the constraints exercised by broader, complex and inter connected economic, political and social processes.
