Modern Migrations
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the theoretical implications of the migration of Gujarati Indians to New York and London and proposes a relational approach to understanding migration and migrant networks. It discusses the social networks literature in economic sociology as well as network studies of migration in order to understand better the structures underlying networks and the kinds of transactions that arise within networks. It also considers how migration flows occur and looks at the role of migrant networks in mobility. The chapter analyzes how coethnicity operates within a network and how network ties are linked to interpersonal ties, along with larger structures of power such as institutions and states.

Keywords:   Gujarati Indians, New York, London, social networks, migration, mobility, coethnicity, states, institutions, interpersonal ties
