Este estudio analiza las relaciones entre los emigrantes colombianos y su pai?s de origen. Los autores estudian el feno?meno de la emigracio?n con base en una encuesta sobre actitudes, opiniones y ha?bitos de los emigrantes y utilizan un modelo probabili?stico y un modelo lineal. En particular, analizan los factores que afectan las remesas, cuantifican las conexiones de los emigrantes con Colombia, analizan los factores que las determinan y analizan los factores que influyen sobre el deseo de regresar al pai?s. El estudio concluye que: i) el envi?o de remesas no parece disminuir con el tiempo de residencia en el exterior, ii) las conexiones de los emigrantes (tanto con su pai?s como con sus compatriotas) tambie?n tienden a ser persistentes e incluso aumentan durante los an?os iniciales de residencia en el exterior, iii) el deseo de retorno cae durante los primeros an?os pero luego se estabiliza en niveles superiores a 50%, y iv) los emigrantes residentes en los Estados Unidos y Espan?a son no so?lo ma?s propensos a enviar remesas, sino tambie?n a incurrir en pra?cticas transnacionales.
