Immigration et insertion urbaine en Floride : le rôle de la famille transnationale haïtienne

Abstract : This paper analyzes the role of the transnational family in Haitian migration towards Florida and in immigrant urban adaptation. In the context of Haitian structural dependancy on the U.S., Florida has become a major migratory destination. The Haitian transnational family, structured by strong and multiple links between its members in Haiti and Florida, remains the basis of this migration dynamics. It paves the way for an intense movement of information and capital between both areas ; moreover, it offers a precious help for urban insertion in Florida. In Little Haiti, the original residential area, family reunification has often triggered illegal residential conversion as a response to housing overcrowding. But since 1986, spatial concentration has been replaced by urban spreading towards the suburbs, due to diversified familial strategies.
