A Transnational Approach to Migration: The Service international d’aide aux émigrantes and Its Marseilles Office in the First Half of the Twentieth Century

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Migrants and government migration policies have generated a large quantity of research, but few publications have focused on actors at the interface between migrants and state policy, such as associations, employers' organizations, and private investment institutions. In recent years, historians have begun to analyze the ways in which people, ideas and objects circulate, change place and link together over and beyond the national sphere, which has until now been the principal basis for analytical research. In terms of relationships, this transnational approach has resulted, in particular, in a review of intermediary areas that have often remained invisible and of interactions between these spaces and nations.
In 1921, at the suggestion of the American branch of the Young Woman’s Christian Association (YWCA), women of various nationalities created an international service to look after women emigrating across borders; known as the International Migration Service (IMS) (in french the Service international d’aide aux émigrants), this organization launched its activities in 1924 using their network with offices in several countries. Drawing on archival material from the Marseilles office of the IMS in France, I will review the origins and birth of this feminine transnational network which, during its early years, focused its activities principally on women migrants. I will then extend my analysis to cover the evolution of the Marseilles Office during the first half of the 20th century.
