Gérer la vieillesse dans les familles transnationales. Ethnographies comparées Équateur/Soudan

Abstract : Migration and social protection are often a family project, whereby transnational ties span across multiple locations. To understand how migrants and their families organize social protection, it is important to collect data both in origin and destination countries, to observe multidirectional circulation of people and resources. A multi-sited matched-sample ethnography allows us to understand the logics and practices linked to the transnational social protection of migrants and their families. This article draws on data collected in two multi-sited ethnographies with two different migrant groups, Ecuadorians and Sudanese, in different European countries and with their families in the origin countries. The article focuses on the old-age arrangements of transnational families and shows how the specific contexts and sociocultural norms shape how these families organize their social protection across borders.
