LES RELATIONS FAMILIALES À DISTANCE. ETHNOGRAPHIES DES MIGRATIONS AFGHANES

Abstract : This article focuses on the exchanges and relationships among members of an Afghan family based on the migration itineraries of a father to Pakistan and Iran, and of his son to Europe, twenty years later. The article stresses the different situations that will induce the son to interrupt or resume his ties with his family in Iran. The analysis of those journeys highlights how distance relationships between the members of a family are managed and experienced across space in daily life. In the second generation, it appears that the life cycle of sibling is intimately linked to the movement of the one who migrates. The absent son can be deeply involved in the organization of marriage, play a crucial role in managing intergenerational conflicts, and even step in the marital choice of his sister by favouring changes in the practices.
