Transnational Americans: Latin American perspectives on recent trends in Pan-American migration

Commencing around 1960, two new waves of migration began in the Americas, one from the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean to the USA, Canada and Spain; the other, a more moderate but still significant trend of inter-regional migration within Latin America. Following the dip caused by the 2008 global recession, migration figures for Latin America have recovered and surpassed previous levels albeit with some new features including a rise in migration from other developing countries.  What do recent trends in migration tell us about the Latin American region and what light do they cast on debates about transnationalism?
