For several African immigrants now entering the United States, a central question is how to become a part of the host society’s institutions and at the same time maintain linkages with their home countries. Chapter 3 investigates the institutional and structural processes (including migrant traits or attributes) whereby African immigrants construct and foster adaptation and assimilation. Specific examples are given to illustrate the transforming role of immigrant transnational institutional structures in confronting the problems emanating from the new identities that they seek to create and establish.

20. Adopting a transnational focus for the present study is significant because such an approach recognizes the interconnectivities that migrants nurture between their respective places of origination and the settlement destination or the new host society. African migration is not unilinear and marked by a process whereby Africans leave the continent and settle in faraway destinations only to forget about home. A transnational perspective, as Nolin (2006:32) opined, provides a framework to explore both the causes and effects of migration, and how lives change throughout the migratory process, including the conditions that affect those who migrate and those who do not.
