Albanian-speaking transnational populations in Switzerland : continuities and shifts
Résumé For more than four decades, Switzerland has been a primary destination for the Albanian-speaking immigrants originating in Kosovo, Macedonia, southern Serbia and Montenegro. Throughout this time, migrants have continued to retain strong transnational links with their areas of origin, which until the end of the 1990s meant important economic and financial support, but also political mobilization. Today, however, the diaspora is increasingly focused on integration in
Switzerland, a process which seems to be characterized by a redefinition of migrants’ transnational relations at the crossroad between the culture of the country of origin and that of destination.
