Partir sans quitter, quitter sans partir

Abstract : [Leaving without departing] Although Iran is not generally viewed as an important site of emigration, the latter have marked Iranian history since at least the beginning of the 20th century. The Iranian "diaspora" has constructed a veritable economic and political economy of the voyage, which is centered upon relations with the home country. Leaving is predicated on the expression of a link with the place of debyture, expressed through regular cash remittances; frequent trips home; and the constant circulation of narratives, images, and merchandise. But the imaginary of debyture is not only a matter of migrants: most lranians maintain a virtual relation with the world abroad, which helps them to organize their daily existence and influences on the organization of contemporary Iranian society.
