AGRICULTURAL INTERNATIONAL DISPUTES: MIGRANT FARMERS AND THEIR RIGHT TO MOBILITY (TRANSNATIONAL ANALYSIS)

Abstrac


The historical-economic conditions that began during the last century have led the Mexican rural population to become international through a migration process towards the USA. These farmers/migrants occupy spaces outside the agricultural ambit, without losing their connection to the land, regardless of the expulsion problem and the low profitability in the countryside; in spite of this, they acquired other experiences that would make up the transnational space where their main strategy is directly related to mobility. In this context, one of many migratory processes is analyzed anthropologically from a transnational perspective, exposing the conflict between farmer migrants and the State, confronting their right to work property, starting with the use of vehicles of foreign origin, and showing that the main faculty of the farmer population at issue is the right to mobility between both Nation-States.

Palabras clave: Farmers, rights, space, internationalization, poverty, labor.
