Show Summary Details


This chapter talks about the gendering of Mexican transmigrant political participation, and places it within the context of hometown associations. It first argues that Mexican politics in the United States are not gender neutral. One section summarizes the research methods that were utilized in gathering the information where the discussion is based. The next section takes a look at the background on Mexican migrant- and state-led transnationalism, before shifting to an analysis of the gendering of migrant political practice and organizations. The chapter ends with a study of the implications of the analysis, and provides some conclusions and suggestions for future research.

Keywords: gendering; transmigrant political participation; Mexican politics; research methods; transnationalism; migrant political practice
