Item description for From Migrants to Transnationals - Cosmological and Religious Fundamentals Among Igbo Migrants in an European Setting by Okechukwu Onah Sebastian...
In a world characterised by unabated human migrations and movement, some of the questions that would be of concern to the inquiring mind would naturally be that of the nature and after-effects of the inevitable culture contact between the migrants and the receiving societies; the disposition of the receiving societies towards the migrants; and the adaptation of the migrants to their society of adoption. Using the Igbo migrants in Europe as a case study, this book sets out to indicate how the interaction between the migrant experience of a people and their cosmological fundamentals engenders the development of adaptation strategies, which tend to transform them from ordinary migrants to transnationals. Students of Social and Cultural Anthropology, Religion, Sociology, International relations, European Migration and Integration Policies will find this book very valuable. It will also be very useful for policy makers, as well as pastoral and social workers. Migrants, especially intending and prospective migrants from Africa and other sending societies will also find this book very informative.
