Going North, coming South: Guatemalan migratory flows
Understanding the return aspect of international migration is vital because re-turnees replete with new ideas, perceptions on life, and monies affect every dimension of social life in migrants’ places of origin. Yet, return migration re-mains uneven and an understudied aspect of migratory flows because migra-tion scholars have privileged why individuals migrate, the underlying motiva-tions for their moves abroad, and how migrants assimilate and succeed in their destinations abroad. Drawing on ethnographic research, this article ad-dresses the migratory flows of Ladino and Mayan Guatemalans: those who go North, but in particular, those who come South. And in doing so, it high-lights their similar and divergent responses towards migration processes.
