Gender and migration in two land organization systems in Tlaxcala, México


In this article it is pretended, based on gender relations, to contribute to the study of the transformations of two emergent phenomena of the new century ruralities: migration and reorganization of land tenure systems. Gender implications that arose in two localities of the state of Tlaxcala that have different organizational conventions regarding land tenure are remarked: ejidal and small-scale systems. Gender is taken as an axis for transversal research, orientation that allowed a two level analysis: structural and social actor practices. Since the middle of the nineties, international migration is an important income source and a survival alternative for the residents of two rural villages of the state of Tlaxcala. In the small-scale property this phenomenon occurred later than in the cooperative one; the incorporation of woman in these processes has been slower. In both populations and even though migrant experiences point out harmful experiences, these illegal movements are gaining speed instead of restraining and they are increasingly involving other actors of the rural environment.

Palabras clave: Structure, gender, globalization, migration, practices, land.
