This paper presents the results of a one-year empirical study documenting the patterns, practices and impacts of transnational migration by people from the Dominican Republic (DR) to Switzerland during the years 1980 to 2005. Additionally, discussion of the transfer of remittances sent by Dominicans in Switzerland and their use and impacts on one migrant-sending community in the DR is given a special focus. This case study is an original contribution to the small but growing literature documenting contemporary migration of Latin Americans to Europe, and in particular, to Switzerland.
