This paper sheds light on the practices and subjectivities of Bolivian transnational families in Spain. We identify transnational family arrangements in terms of the renegotiation of caregiving responsibilities and the allocation of resources, as well as their impacts on gender roles. Drawing on a multi-site qualitative research design using in-depth interviews with Bolivian migrants and the adult family members left behind, the paper examines two dimensions: changing perceptions on family gender roles in comparison to the pre-migration stage and changes in practices resulting in a sexual division of labour.
