The complexity of African migration across Central America

Gerd Altman

In this article, Dr Nanneke Winters and Dr Heike Drotbohm discuss the complexity of African migrant trajectories in Central America to broaden the scope of transnational scholarship

They focus on the interplays between migration displacement and emplacement that are part of these trajectories, aiming to increase understanding of the extent to which migrants still ‘on the move’ experience both temporal embeddedness and cross‐border connectedness. 

The authors consider selected empirical cases to discuss the dynamics of travelling, dwelling and travelling again as part of African migrant trajectories across Central America.
