Abstract: The paper draws on the case of the Salvadoran civil war and its experiences of migration, refugee flight, and post-war reconstruction to analyze the formation and character of transnational migrant communities, and to consider their role in local development initiatives. The paper traces three patterns of exodus, settlement, and post-war return within the Salvadoran refugee process. It identifies the types of border-crossing exchanges and relationships out of which two different types of transnational migrant communities begin to emerge. Turning to the post-war period, the discussion focuses on the ways in which transnational communities are transformed as they struggle to participate in the local development process. The practices of El Salvador’s transnational refugee-migrants emerge as a strategic research site from which to contribute a more nuanced understanding of the ways in which community is formed and transformed as it becomes embedded in transnational social fields.
