  • Of Morals and Markets: Social Exchange and Poverty in Contemporary Urban
           Mexico
    • Authors: Mercedes González de la Rocha
      Pages: 26 - 45
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 689, Issue 1, Page 26-45, May 2020.
      Based on longitudinal ethnographic research in Guadalajara, Mexico, from the 1980s to present, I argue that there has been a significant change in the availability of mutual help or support networks for the economically disadvantaged. As time and income have become increasingly scarce, people who used to find support in reciprocal social relationships now find that support-givers are in no position to provide assistance for free. Now, people experiencing scarcity find that they must pay for help formerly available through social relations. In other words, care within the family, in contexts of urban poverty, is becoming a commodity. A paradox arises for those who have fewer resources: they are excluded by the market economy, and by resorting to mercantilist values to survive, they are violating moral principles and norms that exclude them even more from social exchange.

  • Walking a Tightrope: Using Financial Diaries to Investigate Day-to-Day
           
    • Authors: Olga Biosca, Neil McHugh, Fatma Ibrahim, Rachel Baker, Tim Laxton, Cam Donaldson
      Pages: 46 - 64
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 689, Issue 1, Page 46-64, May 2020.
      Financially vulnerable, low-income individuals are more likely to experience financial exclusion as they are unable to access financial services that meet their needs. How do they cope with economic instability, and what is the role of social networks in their coping strategies' Using financial diaries, we explore the day-to-day monetary transactions (n = 16,889) of forty-five low-to-moderate income individuals with restricted access to mainstream lending in Glasgow, UK, over a six-month period. Our sample includes users of microcredit and financial advice, as well as nonusers of these services. Findings reveal that informal lending to avoid the pernicious effects of short-term illiquidity was pervasive among these individuals. However, taking informal loans often strains valuable social capital and keeps people from building up a formal credit footprint. Our findings suggest that financially vulnerable populations would benefit from policies that focus on alternative financial mechanisms to help stabilize income-insecure individuals in the short-term.

  • Relationships Stretched Thin: Social Support Mobilization in Poverty
    • Authors: Miranda J. Lubbers, Hugo Valenzuela García, Paula Escribano Castaño, José Luis Molina, Antònia Casellas, Jorge Grau Rebollo
      Pages: 65 - 88
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 689, Issue 1, Page 65-88, May 2020.
      Research on how the poor “make ends meet” typically shows that they are able to do so by relying on dense support networks of family and close friends. Recent research suggests, however, that these networks play a limited role. This article examines the role of informal networks in how sixty-one households in Barcelona, Spain, cope with poverty. We use a mixed-methods design that combines structured network delineation with semistructured interviews about the processes of support mobilization. Findings show a great variation in network size and resource capacity among households and in the kinds of ties that offer support. Social support was regarded as essential among members of poor households, but mobilized networks were often insufficient for covering even the most basic needs, and prolonged network mobilization could cause strain and long-term conflict. This analysis suggests that support networks may help people to cope with income volatility while simultaneously increasing the potential for social exclusion and isolation.

  • How Do Low-Income People Form Survival Networks' Routine Organizations
           as Brokers
    • Authors: Mario L. Small, Leah E. Gose
      Pages: 89 - 109
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 689, Issue 1, Page 89-109, May 2020.
      While supportive social ties help to buffer against the consequences of poverty, few researchers have examined how people form such ties. New ties are often formed in routine organizations such as businesses, churches, and childcare centers, which, beyond being places to work, shop, or receive services, are institutionally governed spaces of social interaction. Based on the notion of organizational brokerage, we introduce a perspective that specifies when routine organizations contribute to tie formation and use it to reexamine data from existing qualitative studies of such organizations among the poor. We argue that successful brokerage will depend on the degree to which an organization’s institutional norms render interaction among participants frequent, long-lasting, focused on others, and centered on joint tasks; and that the ensuing networks may differ from other supportive ties in the sense of belonging they may cultivate, the form of generalized exchange they may engender, and the organizational connections they may create.

      Research has highlighted that social ties help poor people to survive, but has also shown that nonkin ties often only last a short time. In this article, I argue that organizations that serve the needs of poor people can help to create more sustainable supportive ties among them. Drawing on participant observation and ethnographic interviews with twenty-five members of the Kensington Welfare Rights Union (KWRU) in Philadelphia—an organization of, by, and for poor people—I found that supportive ties among members of KWRU can last years or even decades. I show how this organization enabled poor people to create and maintain supportive ties. KWRU provided people living in desperate poverty space for frequent interaction, connection, and cooperation. The organization supported a sense of kinship among members, and group leaders often helped to mend rifts between members. While KWRU is distinctive, other organizations that serve the needs of poor people could use this model to be more responsive to the needs of those in poverty.

  • Holiday Clubs as Community Organizations
    • Authors: Paul B. Stretesky, Margaret Anne Defeyter, Michael A. Long, Zeibeda Sattar, Eilish Crilley

      Holiday clubs—publicly or privately operated organizations that provide child care services and healthy food to disadvantaged children in the United Kingdom (UK) when schools are not in session—are increasing in number. We know a good deal about the effectiveness of the clubs in terms of nutrition-related outcomes, but little is known about the anti-poverty resources these holiday clubs may provide. The possibility that club funding may be centralized through the national government requires a better understanding of holiday club resources. This study describes the range of resources that holiday clubs deliver and reports on how these resources are acquired and brokered by club staff and volunteers. We use data from seventeen clubs operating in disadvantaged communities in North East England during the summer of 2017, and find that clubs deliver an assortment of anti-poverty resources that are often tied to staff (personal and professional) networks.

  • A Divided Sisterhood: Support Networks of Trans Sex Workers in Urban
           Turkey
    • Authors: Ezgi Güler
      Pages: 149 - 167
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 689, Issue 1, Page 149-167, May 2020.
      This article examines how transgender individuals operating in the underground sex economy in urban Turkey form supportive relationships and mobilize against various forms of violence, given structural conditions that encourage distrust and competition and undermine collective efforts among the sex workers. I found that, despite their conditions, workers heavily relied on each other for matters ranging from small-scale interpersonal exchanges of resources to community mobilization. However, the violent and unpredictable circumstances of their lives still generated repeated conflict, making their ties precarious. The article considers the importance of fictive kinship ties in this community, and discusses the coexistence of solidarity and conflict in sex workers’ relationships.

  • Asymmetries in Transnational Social Protection: Perspectives of Migrants
           and Nonmigrants
    • Authors: Başak Bilecen
      Pages: 168 - 191
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 689, Issue 1, Page 168-191, May 2020.
      This study investigates the extent to which migrants’ embeddedness in two formal social protection systems (country of origin and host country) influences the resources they exchange in their informal supportive relationships. I analyze the support networks of a matched sample of Turkish migrants in Germany and their significant others in Turkey to illuminate the conditions and meaning of reciprocal resource exchanges, finding that both migrants and nonmigrants perceive formal social protection offered by Germany as superior to that of Turkey. I show that those perceptions have implications for how financial support is exchanged with the family but have less impact on friendships. These implications for family included unequal power relationships, changes in equity among siblings and family, different valuation processes of resources, and thus, (reciprocal) exchanges.

  • Ties that Bind/Unwind: The Social, Economic, and Organizational Contexts
           of Sharing Networks
    • Authors: Katherine S. Newman
      Pages: 192 - 201
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 689, Issue 1, Page 192-201, May 2020.
      This commentary provides a synthetic overview and analytic framework for understanding the papers in this volume of The ANNALS, which focuses on sharing networks in a comparative context. Economic crises endemic to capitalist societies generate the need for support networks, while welfare state configurations influence their importance as an additional survival tool. Social norms set the stage for the degrees of reciprocity and durable obligation that networks engender and the boundary conditions that enable or disable the most vulnerable members of the social hierarchy to tap the resources of more privileged contacts.
