Chapter 2 lays out a theory of migrant influence. It does so by borrowing heavily on the theories of social remittances and economic remittances as well as social networks. It shows how and why migrants are more or less likely to shape a country’s politics. It develops the ideas of how contexts and social networks work together and how these elements can limit or expand the influence of migrants.
