Ähnlich wie vor etwas mehr als einem Jahrzehnt die Begriffe "global" und "Globalisierung" scheinen heute die Termini "transnational" und "Transnationalisierung" zu viel gebrauchten Modebegriffen zu werden. Sollen damit alle grenzüberschreitenden sozialen Beziehungen bezeichnet werden und wird Transnationalisierung damit ein neuer Catch-All-Begriff?

118), many Afrikaners returned to South Africa while ‘liberals, moderates and progressives who had welcomed or accepted the prospects of majority rule’ stayed. The scattering of white Zimbabweans from the country has been phenomenal. Godwin (1993, p. 315) estimates that ‘the white population of 232,000 in mid1979 become about 80,000 in 1990’. As Selby (2006, p. 116) further argues, the pattern of emigration ‘suggests that significant numbers of whites were unwilling to accept the prospects of living as a minority group under majority rule’.
It could be argued that the Zimbabwean diaspora is neither limited to any historical phase of migration nor is it a linear process, but rather, a result of cumulative periods of movements. For example, the labour migrants to South African gold mines may have produced ephemeral communities as they moved back and forth into Zimbabwe. On the other hand, Van Hear (1998, p. 48) refers to the ‘return’ of migrants to their homeland as ‘the unmaking of diasporas’ or ‘de-diasporization’. Certainly, the majority of refugees and political exiles living in neighbouring Zambia, Mozambique, Malawi and Botswana during the liberation war may have experienced this de-diasporization.

Is it during the first phase of migration, that is, the migration of political exiles to neighbouring countries and abroad, and the labour recruitment of Zimbabweans to work in South African gold mines? It could be argued that the Zimbabwean diaspora is neither limited to any historical phase of migration nor is it a linear process, but rather, a result of cumulative periods of movements. For example, the labour migrants to South African gold mines may have produced ephemeral communities as they moved back and forth into Zimbabwe.
