El asociacionismo africano en España: una realidad incipiente
MetadataShow full item record
The fact that there are few studies considering the organisation and working of the associations of African-origin foreigners in Spain has awoken our interest and has led us to analyse the internal and external structure and organisation of associations with this profile and to link these to their aims
and the activities they carry out. Our starting point is the belief that there are different organisational and development structures, influenced by their surroundings and internal dynamics, which condition the goals and activities of the associations. Furthermore, by defining what they aim to achieve and what they actually achieve, we have discovered that this associationism is not very politically motivated and mainly focuses on socio-cultural aspects. This study presents the results of a survey carried out among 206 representatives of associations of African-origin immigrants in three regions or autonomous communities, namely, Catalonia, Valencia and Navarre.
