Abstract: This presentation questions the coherence and unity of the Eurafrican and American Mediterranean basins as well as their heterogeneity and plurality in a geohistorical and geoeconomic perspective. It focuses on the way the development of transnational migrant business interrelates economic strategies, social solidarities and ethnic identities. The analysis of the socio-geography of transnational ethnic businesses at the meta-regional level as well as at the very local level provides a comprehensive approach of the economic, cultural and geopolitical issues the Mediterranean areas have in common.
