Repensar lo rural ante la globalización: La sociedad civil migrante


  • Fox, Jonathan A


One of each eight adult Mexicans resides in the United States. The rural-rural component of this migrationary process explains a growing ruralization of the Mexican population in the United States. It could be surmised that the migrants have opted to exit rather than use their voice; nevertheless many of them are exercising their voice from what might be termed the ‘migrant civil society’ via (i) community-based social organizations; (ii) civil organizations controlled or influenced by migrants; (iii) means of communication controlled or influenced by migrants; and (iv) autonomous public spaces.
