Further Details
Abstract The purpose of this special issue is to establish to what extent the place in which immigrants settle (namely the region or country) might determine the types of political activity in which they engage. More precisely, we aim to ascertain whether and for what reasons different forms of transnational political activity develop in the United States and Europe. To achieve this rather ambitious goal, through looking at a series of case studies from Europe and the USA we try to identify the full range of such activities, while at the same time noting various similarities in the actions undertaken by communities based in the same area.
