Caribbean Migration Spaces and Transnational Networks: The Case of the Haitian Diaspora

Abstract : The Caribbean region's cultural and spatial borders mirror its underlying identities: shifting, fluid and constantly changing. The Caribbean migration experience provides a dynamic platform for renewed understandings of boundaries as shaped by transnational reticular territories. This chapter explores the extent to which states must integrate their diasporas as part of their economic and diplomatic policy, given the huge impact of exiled communities on their homelands' growth and international outreach. Haiti and its diaspora are the most illustrative textbook case, when it comes to such contemporary dynamics. Such a differentiated spatial system acting as a network should encourage us to review our analytical categories and representations of borders and identities; Haitian identities are constantly being reshaped both in and out of the country.
