MetadataShow full item record
Return migration is an important phenomenon that affects migrants and their receiving and sending communities. In this SIP, I examine qualitative data on the experience of identity and sense of belonging of thirteen Oaxacan migrants who have recently returned to their communities in Mexico after living in the United States. According to Marcelo Suarez (2000), the wave of migration of immigrants of color is a growing topic of study that is at the heart of sociocultural consequences of migration.
