Article: Multilocality in Personal and Family Histories: Transnational Families between Cuba and Germany in the Context of Social Change

Itinera1SeiteIn the context of economic crisis,the devaluation of the Cuban pesos and privatization, migration and transnational households emerge as new survival strategies. Twenty percent of the Cuban population lives abroad. Those who stay in Cuba receive remittances and are thus upwardly mobile as opposed to well-educated Cubans who do not benefit from ties abroad. Based on the multi-sited analysis of biographical interviews, this paper shows how these changes shape individual experiences and how these experiences feed the social transformation process that ultimately undermine Cuba’s socialist system.
