uring the last decades, the number of migrants who live their lives across different nation-states has grown dramatically. Recent terms such as globalisation, transmigration or hybridity indicate that the traditional notion of the geographic and the social space is changing. Analysing the case of Senegambian residents in Catalonia, I suggest that the dynamism, flexibility and complexity of transmigration processes challenges the hardened dichotomy ‘society of departure / society of destination’, a reality that leads to socio-political changes at a structural level around the globe.
