EUI - Diasporic formations in motion: (re)mobilising transnational communities, the case of Chile.

Awarded: NOK 2.2 mill.

Project Number:


Application Type:

Project Period:

2021 - 2024

Subject Fields:


This aim of this project is to understand how and why diasporic formations lose steam and remobilise in the light of shifting conditions pertaining to the diasporic make-up, as well as to wider political developments both in the home country and globally. I will be exploring these processes through a mixed-methods study of the ongoing mobilisations within Chilean communities in Europe. These are the largest diaspora mobilisations observed since the end of the dictatorship in the 1990s, and culminated in a historical plebiscite in which they were able to take part. Through this research, I hope to contribute to a growing field of scholarship that considers the interplay between grassroot initiatives and wider political structures in shaping practices of transnational citizenship.
