Short description: Voices from Abroad - Prof. Luis E. Guarnizo (University of California, Davis)

Based on survey data collected in four metropolitan areas in Spain and Italy, this presentation discusses the main findings of a quantitative analysis of the determinants of migrant local and transnational political participation.  This study forms part of a larger project conducted with Ninna Sorensen comparing the mode of incorporation and transnational engagement of Dominican and Colombian migrants in four European countries.  This project was designed following an earlier study on the subject that I conducted with Alejandro Portes in the United States (CIEP) in the late 1990s.
