Transnational Politics in Central America

This chapter reviews the burgeoning recognition of transnationalism as a dimension of analysis distinguished from both nation-state and global perspectives, identifying transnational issues of special relevance for the study of Central America. The concept of transnationalism, as considered in this work, addresses the interconnectivity across nations that is often triggered by, and in turn conditions, those social processes, political movements, and cultural networks extending beyond nation-state borders. Such interconnectivity can develop—although does not necessarily unfold—along organizational lines. Yet, often, it becomes equally visible in cultural bonds, historical memories, cross-border networks, and unstructured migration flows.

Keywords:   transnationalism, Central America, social processes, political movements, cultural networks
