    The political choices of emigrants voting in home country elections: A socio-political analysis of the electoral behaviour of Bolivian external voters2015In: Migration Studies, ISSN 2049-5838, E-ISSN 2049-5846, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 155-181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What variables influence the electoral behaviour of citizens voting in home country elections from abroad? Despite the growing interest of migration scholars for the topic of external voting, this question remains largely unanswered. Basing ourselves on the existing political science literature on electoral behaviour and on the migration literature on immigrants' participation in host country politics, we isolate different hypotheses that explain emigrants' preferences in home country politics. We then build four models of voters based on these hypotheses: the social group voter, the ideological voter, the interest-driven voter, and the transnational voter. In the second part of the paper, we verify the validity of these models using the results of a survey carried out with Bolivian emigrants who took part in the 2009 Bolivian presidential election from abroad. Overall, this article identifies the drivers of immigrant transnational political participation and contributes to current debates on social remittances.

    How level is the Playing Field? Divided Families Among Latin American Immigrants in Spain2013In: The History of the Family, ISSN 1081-602X, E-ISSN 1873-5398, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 26-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    International migratory movements tend to produce the reality of divided families that are located in at least two different places. The literature on divided or transnational families and family reunification movements has shown how the socio-demographic determinants in origin and the socio-economic and institutional factors in destination drive these processes. Assuming that migratory movements are the result to a large extent of specifically familial dynamics and strategies, in this paper we are interested in exploring whether other elements associated to the country of origin and to the relationship between country of origin and country of destination have a discernible influence on the family results of migration and, specifically, on the separation and subsequent reunification of the immigrant families. This complex set of elements builds on the playing field where migratory decisions are taken. The Spanish case, characterized by a sudden explosion of international immigration between 2000 and 2007 and significant numbers of Latin American migrants arriving during these years, is a particularly suitable scenario to investigate this phenomenon. The empirical analysis will be mainly based on the National Immigrant Survey of Spain (2007).

    Abstract [en]

    From the standpoint of assimilation theory, mixed marriages have traditionally been considered as the final stage of the integration process for the immigrants into the host society. From this perspective, we have made use of the recent National Immigrant Survey (2007) in Spain to analyze mixed marriages affecting Latin American immigrants and native Spaniards. Bivariate and multivariate approaches are used to analyze the contexts of these types of marriage, controlling for indicators such as sex, education, current citizenship, year of arrival, and the time between marriage and migration. The results reveal a fascinating and complex portrait of a type of marriage behavior that can vary significantly by country of origin.

    Factores estructurales de la exogamia matrimonial de los inmigrantes en España y Portugal2010In: Revista de Demografía Histórica, ISSN 1696-702X, Vol. 28, no 2, p. 165-194Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article studies the marriage pattern of immigrants in the south of Europe using data of vital register from 2001 to 2008.

    The aim of this research is to study how immigrant population integrates in Spain and Portugal analyzing intermarriage with native people. The high incidence of intermarriage is considered to be the final step of the immigrant assimilation into the host society. This is the reason for which it is used as a perfectly suitable indicator of the level of assimilation. We expect that frequency of intermarriage will be higher among immigrants from countries linked to the receiving society through a strong historical and cultural bond. Only marriage couples are been included.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies patterns of endogamous marriages of immigrants in Spain by using data from the NationalImmigrant Survey of Spain (2007). First of all, we examine patterns of endogamous marriage and linksbetween migration and marriage. Second, we assess the factors influencing the likelihood of being in anendogamous marriage. Our analyses focus on persons married either immediately before, during or afterarrival in Spain originating from six countries: Morocco, Romania, Ecuador, Colombia, Argentina, and a groupof other developing countries. Results show that the level of endogamy is highest among the Moroccan immigrantsand lowest for those coming from Colombia. The likelihood of an endogamous union is higher for thosemarried before migration compared to those married later. Furthermore, chances on endogamy are lower formore highly educated. Women are less likely than men to be in endogamous unions.

    The marriage boom: Spanish and Swedish women making sense of marriage during the marriage boom2015In: The History of the Family, ISSN 1081-602X, E-ISSN 1873-5398, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 69-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the marriage boom that took place during the middle decades of the twentieth century. The increase in nuptiality is analyzed in Spain and Sweden from a qualitative perspective, and the authors describe how cultural, social, economic and institutional transformations were understood by women who were in their reproductive period during the marriage boom. In-depth interviews were conducted in both places with 51 women born between 1919 and 1951. The authors argue that it is important that the ways in which the factors previously identified as decisive of the marriage boom are studied for their motivating power, and the way they were or were not made important in people's understandings of their marital practices. The results show that despite the differences between the national contexts of Spain and Sweden, three interrelated themes recurred when the interviewed women framed their marital choices: (1) the normalization of marriage as a life event; (2) religion; (3) and education and work life. The results also suggest that the women highlighted norm systems within which their choices and decisions were made, rather than describing individual choices and decisions as stemming from individual preferences and wishes.

    The rise of age homogamy in 19th century. Western Europe2009In: Journal of Marriage and Family, ISSN 0022-2445, E-ISSN 1741-3737, Vol. 71, no 5, p. 1234-1253Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In many parts of Western Europe the age at first marriage and the level of celibacy declined in the second half of the 19th century. This weakening of the European marriage pattern (EMP) can be interpreted as a “classic” response to the increase of the standard of living, but a more far-reaching interpretation is that the erosion of the EMP was part of a cultural shift characterized by the rise of a new, less instrumental and more egalitarian view on marriage and partner selection. The latter vision implies the increase of the preference for a same age marriage. We test this explanation by using a combined Belgian-Dutch data set of marriage certificates (N = 766,412). Our findings corroborate the “cultural shift thesis.”

    Mortality decline and reproductive change during the Dutch demographic transition: revisiting a traditional debate with new data2012In: Demographic Research, ISSN 1435-9871, Vol. 27, p. 299-338Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: According to classic demographic transition theory, mortality change is the key factor that triggers a decline in fertility. Research on this topic has mostly relied on aggregate or time series data. Since fertility is based on the joint decisions of couples when confronted with specific fertility-childhood mortality outcomes, a focus on the experiences of individual couples is needed. Recently, Reher and Sanz-Gimeno used this approach to analyze individual longitudinal data for the Spanish town of Aranjuez. Objective: We investigate whether, in a country and in populations characterized by varying cultural and socioeconomic circumstances, family organization, and demographic regimes, the same mechanisms influenced the process of fertility decline as in Spain. Methods: The study uses micro longitudinal data from the Historical Sample of the Netherlands for a period stretching from the last quarter of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th century, and demographic measures identical to those used in the Spanish study to test whether the decline in fertility was triggered by the decline in mortality at the level of the family. As religious groups and social classes differed in their ability to correctly assess the implications of mortality levels, and in their willingness, readiness, and ability to react to these changes by adapting their reproductive behavior, we also compared the effect of mortality decline by the religion and the social class of the couples. Results: We observed that childhood survival had clear effects on reproduction, the chances of having another child, and the length of the intervals between births, which indicates that this variable was crucial for fertility decisions. This pattern was especially strong after 1900. There were rather consistent and expected differences in the reactions to the survival of children by social class and religious group. Whereas skilled workers were rather sensitive to the number of surviving children, farm families were much less likely to allow their chance to have another child and the length of the intervals between births to be affected by the number of surviving children. Liberal Protestant couples differed sharply from Orthodox Protestant and Catholic couples in their reactions to the increase in the number of surviving children. In both the Netherlands and in Spain, the familial experience of childhood survival was central in determining reproductive strategies, although interesting differences can be seen. Conclusions: Our findings on the large differences in the fertility reactions to (changing) mortality patterns strongly support the idea that there were multiple fertility declines, or a variety of paths to lower fertility. Basically, whether couples implement fertility strategies in reaction to the number of surviving offspring is determined by how people perceive their lives. The willingness and the ability to implement such a reproductive strategy stem from the ability of couples to think about long-term goals; their ability to perceive the way the survival or the death of their offspring affects family size and family well-being over the short, medium, and long term; and the degree to which they are willing to make decisions to achieve those long-term goals.
