Cartographies of Cape Verdean transnationalism

Peer-reviewed Journal Article

Carling, Jørgen (2003) Cartographies of Cape Verdean transnationalism, Global Networks 3(4): 533–539.

This article explores the geographical structure of transnational practice by means of cartographic representations of statistical data. Using the case of Cape Verde, data on emigrant relatives, remittances, and migration aspirations are combined to produce a visual representation of a transnational social field. A second figure employs remittance statistics to shows how the geography of transnational connections varies from island to island within the archipelago.
