Abstract

This article tackles the migration project of Ukrainian immigrants in Spain in a context of economic and geopolitical uncertainty as a dynamic process, articulating the temporal, spatial and relational dimensions. More specifically, the residential intentions (to stay, return or re-emigrate) are studied in relation to the evolution of relational anchoring both in the home country, in the host country and in other countries. The analyses are based on a longitudinal study conducted between 2009 and 2016, using a mixed methodology design. A quali-quantitative and visual analysis of the change and / or stability of the composition and structure of the personal networks has shown that the migration project is very much related to the sense of belonging, depending on both the local and transnational configuration of personal networks. Moreover, this network configuration determines the impact of economic crises and armed conflict on the planning of future place residence.
