Abstract

Este estudio procura identificar, cuantificar y analizar posibles conductas discriminatorias en el sur de Ecuador. Hay tres hallazgos principales. En primer lugar, la emigración se considera un problema social. En segundo lugar, las familias de emigrantes se consideran económicamente “irracionales”, porque no invierten las remesas que reciben en actividades productivas y sustentables, y también se las considera “irresponsables”, porque dejan a sus familias para ir en busca de mejores condiciones de vida. Por último, los hijos de los emigrantes tienen un rendimiento escolar peor que sus compañeros y viven fuera de la sociedad en general. La discriminación observada sigue un patrón cultural: las personas más allegadas a la cultura dominante tienen proporcionalmente más probabilidades de discriminar contra los emigrantes y sus familias, y las mujeres son más discriminatorias que los hombres.
