AbstractWe use the MAFE Project data to examine the incidence and duration of childparent separations among Senegalese migrants, as well as the determinants of child-parent reunification. Our findings indicate that approximately one-sixth of the Senegalese children in our sample had been separated from their parents due to parental migration to Europe. These separations are relatively long, especially if the absent parent is the father. Reunification of Senegalese migrant parents with their children is infrequent, both in Senegal and Europe. However, the location where reunification occurs is important, as it is associated with markedly different family types. Parents who end separations by returning to Senegal belong to families that clearly depart from the Western nuclear model, whereas Senegalese families in which parents decided to bring their children to Europe are closer to Western family arrangements.
