Nations unbound : transnational projects, postcolonial predicaments, and deterritorialized nation-states by Linda G Basch( Book )

55 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work examines an increasing trend in migration - transnationalism. Immigrants today are no longer rooted in one location. By building transnational social networks, economic alliances and political ideologies, they are able to cross the geographic and cultural boundaries of both their countries of origin and of settlement. Through ethnographic studies of immigrant populations from St Vincent, Grenada, Haiti and the Philippines to the United States, the authors aim to demonstrate that transnationalism is something other than expanded nationalism. They argue that by placing immigrants in a limbo between the settler and visitor, transnationalism challenges the concepts of citizenship and nationhood

Urban children in distress : global predicaments and innovative strategies by Cristina Szanton Blanc( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication presents a discussion of the status of poor urban children world-wide and the design of a five-nation study of the condition of distressed urban children. Following an introduction, Section 2 describes the urban child project designed to study and advance the plight of urban children in developing nations. Section 3 outlines the scope of the problem, including urbanization trends, migration, and issues beyond the statistics. Section 4 describes growing up urban and poor, focusing on the deteriorating environment, poverty and ethnic redistribution, the lack of appropriate shelter, child labor in the urban informal sector, lack of access to safe play spaces, and the monotony of poverty stricken communities. Section 5 describes the five studies being carried out in the Philippines, India, Kenya, Brazil, and Italy. The issues covered are childhood, families, coping strategies, communities and neighborhoods, and children in especially difficult circumstances. Also described are the study's comparative assessment of situations, street children, views on working children, and the problem in the context of the larger society. Also mentioned are an assessment of policies and programs, and interventions. Contains 108 references. (JB)
Children of migrants and ethnic minorities : an overview and conceptual framework by Cristina Szanton Blanc( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Western Europe, internal and international migrations have generated vulnerable populations, notably an increasing number of children and young people of "foreign" parentage. Their problems are not specific to one ethnic group but derive from sociocultural processes and from situations of social relegation. Case studies based on a literature review provide profiles of the situation of migrant families and children in the Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom, and Italy. Each study discusses political and ideological attitudes toward immigrant groups, the historical context of migrations, and key aspects of relevant legislation. The social and ethno-cultural situations of major migrant groups are examined, focusing on family and household data, school performance, nutrition and health status, youth employment, and encounters with the law. The studies indicate that a growing number of children are being affected by divided families, "commuter" or cyclical migrations, the feminization and racialization of poverty, informal-sector employment, formation of ghettos, and loss of hope. Although migrant children have lower educational attainment than "indigenous" children with similar socioeconomic characteristics, the same migrant populations fare differently in different host countries. There is an urgent need for the European community to adopt a new social agenda in which migrants and their children figure prominently. This paper contains 81 references. (SV)

From immigrant to transmigrant : theorizing transnational migration by Nina Glick Schiller( )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary immigrants can not be characterized as the "uprooted." Many are transmigrants, becoming firmly rooted in their new country but maintaining multiple linkages to their homeland. In the United States anthropologists are engaged in building a transnational anthropology and rethinking their data on immigration. Migration proves to be an important transnational process that reflects and contributes to the current political configuration of the emerging global economy
A right to survive; subsistence marketing in a lowland Philippine town by Maria Christina Blanc Szanton( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive analysis is made of the movement of food and supplies from their sources, through middlemen, to consumers in the public market-place of Estancia, Iloilo, a town of 15,000 people located on the northeastern corner of Panay Island in the Philippines. An insight into the social and economic operations of this marketing process--extrapolated to underdeveloped countries throughout the world--suggests action programs for coping effectively with the impediments to progress which lie in many present production and marketing patterns.
