  • Drugs, Violence, and Capitalism: The Expansion of Opioid Use in the
    • Authors: Paulo José dos Reis Pereira
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      In the past two decades, the United States has experienced a rapid rise in the use of opioids by its population, a context that has come to be assessed by the U.S. government as a threat to national and international security that requires emergency measures. The strategies of the U.S. government and transnational pharmaceutical corporations for resolving the insecurity generated by capitalist accumulation constitute what a certain literature calls “pacification.” In addition, these corporations export to the “foreign” the contradictions inherent in the opioid control policy that underlies the capitalist logic of drugs. Thus Latin American populations have been instrumentalized in the “solution” of this crisis either as a focus of violence by the state or as a focus of consumption by the market.Nas últimas duas décadas, os Estados Unidos vivenciaram uma rápida ascensão do uso de opioides pela sua população, contexto que passou a ser avaliado pelo governo estadunidense como uma ameaça à segurança nacional e internacional que demanda medidas emergenciais. As estratégias do Estado estadunidense e das corporações farmacêuticas transnacionais para solucionar a insegurança gerada pela acumulação capitalista configuram o que certa literatura chama “pacificação” Ademais, elas exportam para o “estrangeiro” as contradições próprias da política de controle de opioides que fundamenta a lógica capitalista das drogas. Assim, populações latino-americanas têm sido instrumentalizadas para a “solução” dessa crise, seja como foco da violência pelo Estado, seja como foco do consumo pelo mercado.

  • Cold War, Neoliberal War, and Disappearance: Observations from Mexico
    • Authors: Dawn Marie Paley
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      A comparison of Cold War disappearance drawing examples from conflicts in the last half of the twentieth century in the Southern Cone, Colombia, and Central America with the instances of violence during the subsequent period of consolidation of neoliberalism distinguishes the latter as neoliberal war, operating discursively through a state-promoted linkage of victims and perpetrators to delinquency and organized crime. Examination of neoliberal disappearance in the Mexican state of Coahuila leads to a proposal to consider it as connected not only to the establishment but also to the ongoing maintenance of neoliberal capitalism.Una comparación de la desaparición de la Guerra Fría (con ejemplos de conflictos en la última mitad del siglo XX en el Cono Sur, Colombia y Centroamérica) y los casos de violencia durante el período posterior de consolidación del neoliberalismo distingue a esta última etapa como una guerra neoliberal que opera discursivamente a través de una vinculación, promovida por el Estado, de víctimas y perpetradores a la delincuencia y crimen organizado. Un análisis de la desaparición neoliberal en el estado mexicano de Coahuila nos lleva a la propuesta de considerarla como relacionada no sólo al establecimiento sino también al mantenimiento continuo del capitalismo neoliberal.

  • Socio-territorial Disputes and Violence on Fracking Land in Vaca Muerta,
    • Authors: María Gisela Hadad, Tomás Palmisano, Juan Wahren
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      With the discovery of unconventional hydrocarbon deposits and the consequent expansion of the commodity frontiers in the past decade, a series of territorial disputes over the geological formation called Vaca Muerta has arisen in the province of Neuquén, Argentina, between oil companies, Mapuche indigenous communities, pastoralists, and the state. A general panorama of territorial conflict, state and parastate violence, tension, and negotiation among various actors in conflict in the department of Añelo suggests that violence in the territory is complex and multidimensional, since it supposes the superposition of its direct, structural, ecological, epistemic, and mercantilist forms.En la última década, con el descubrimiento de yacimientos de hidrocarburos no convencionales y la consiguiente ampliación de la frontera mercantil, se han generado en la provincia de Neuquén, Argentina, una serie de disputas territoriales en torno a la formación geológica denominada Vaca Muerta entre empresas petroleras, comunidades indígenas mapuche, crianceros y diferentes niveles del Estado. Un panorama general de la conflictividad territorial, violencias estatales y para-estatales, procesos de tensión y negociación entre los diferentes actores en pugna del departamento de Añelo sugiere que la violencia en el territorio es de carácter complejo y multidimensional pues supone la superposición de su forma directa, estructural, ecológica, epistémica y mercantil.

           to Structural Violence
    • Authors: Efrén Orozco López, Leonardo Nicolás González Torres
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      The indigenous community of Acteal in the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, has been subject to both direct and structural violence in the form of the massacre that took place there in 1997 and the impunity that has persisted ever since. In response to the violence, the community has constructed political, social, and cultural alternatives through the movement known as the Las Abejas of Acteal Civil Society Organization. Its reconstruction of the social fabric has included participation in assembies, volunteer work for the collective, exchange of experiences, food production for subsistence, a solidarity economy, and the systematization and sharing of experiences.La comunidad indígena de Acteal en las tierras altas de Chiapas, México, ha sido objeto de violencia tanto directa y estructural a partir de la masacre que tuvo lugar allí en 1997, así como la impunidad que ha persistido desde entonces. En respuesta a la violencia, la comunidad ha construido alternativas políticas, sociales y culturales a través del movimiento conocido como Organización Sociedad Civil Las Abejas de Acteal. Su reconstrucción del tejido social ha incluido la participación en asambleas, el voluntariado para el colectivo, el intercambio de experiencias, la producción de alimentos para subsistencia, una economía solidaria, y la sistematización e intercambio de experiencias.

  • Hybrid Governance in Northeastern Mexico: Crime, Violence, and
           Legal-Illegal Energy Markets
    • Authors: Marcela López-Vallejo, María del Pilar Fuerte-Celis
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Despite the presence of organized crime in northeastern Mexico, the region has a functioning economy that attracts new investment to energy projects, especially those involving fossil fuels. This may be because legal and illegal markets there tend to overlap and function under hybrid governance schemes. The hybridization of governance is an expression of the fact that legality and illegality are embedded in contemporary capitalist markets. This embeddedness is not an abnormal condition but the way in which societies deal locally with organized crime, and violence serves as the primary regulatory mechanism in disputed territories and markets.A pesar de la presencia del crimen organizado en el noreste de México, la región tiene una economía funcional que atrae nuevas inversiones a proyectos energéticos, especialmente aquellos relacionados con combustibles fósiles. Esto puede deberse a que, ahí, los mercados legales e ilegales tienden a solaparse y funcionar en el marco de los sistemas de gobernanza híbrida. La hibridación de la gobernanza es una expresión del hecho de que la legalidad y la ilegalidad están incrustadas en los mercados capitalistas contemporáneos. Dicha incrustación no es una condición anormal, sino la forma en que las sociedades se ocupan localmente del crimen organizado, y la violencia sirve como el principal mecanismo regulador en los territorios y mercados en disputa.

  • Fuerza Civil: Capital Accumulation and Social Control in Nuevo León,
    • Authors: Markus Buderath, Matthew Heath
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Policing is central to the promotion and enforcement of neoliberalization efforts across the globe. The militarization and police reform associated with the Mexican drug war must be viewed in this context. Examining Nuevo León’s highly militarized semiprivate police force, the Fuerza Civil, reveals that political-economic objectives are inextricably linked to policing reform in the Mexican border state and highlights the role of the city’s industrial elite in these processes.La vigilancia policial es fundamental para la promoción y aplicación de los esfuerzos de neoliberalización en todo el mundo. La militarización y la reforma policial asociadas a la guerra del gobierno mexicano contra las drogas deben ser consideradas en este contexto. Un análisis de la fuerza policial semiprivada y altamente militarizada de Nuevo León, conocida como la Fuerza Civil, revela que los objetivos político-económicos están inextricablemente vinculados a la reforma policial en este estado fronterizo mexicano y destaca el papel de la élite industrial de la ciudad en estos procesos.

  • Rackets and the Markets of Violence: A Case Study of Altavista,
           Medellín, Colombia
    • Authors: Mary Luz Alzate-Zuluaga, Williams Gilberto Jiménez-García
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      An analysis of violence using data from 2018 to 2019 in the village of Altavista in Medellín, Colombia, concludes that economic globalization and a crisis of the social state have led to an increase in inequality and structural violence. This phenomenon, culturally reinforced by the acceptance and normalization of these events, constitutes a window of opportunity for the entrenchment of violent entrepreneurship using extortive economic activities to accumulate capital, resulting in increased precarity for the inhabitants of the village.Un análisis de la violencia en la aldea de Altavista en Medellín, Colombia, utilizando los datos de 2018 a 2019 concluye que la globalización económica y una crisis del estado social han dado lugar a un aumento en la desigualdad y la violencia estructural. Este fenómeno, culturalmente reforzado por la aceptación y normalización de dichos acontecimientos, constituye una ventana de oportunidad para el afianzamiento de una violenta cultura económica basada en la acumulación de capital a partir de la extorsión, lo cual exacerba la presencia de la precariedad en las vidas de los habitantes del pueblo.

  • State Violence, Capital Accumulation, and Globalization of Crime: The Case
           of Ayotzinapa
    • Authors: Obed Frausto, Nayar López Castellanos
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      The violence perpetrated against the students of the Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School by the Mexican state constitutes an extreme form of social control and capital accumulation. The forced disappearance of the 43 students can be explained in two dimensions, political and economic. The political explanation is that the state administers institutional repression and dispossession against peasant and indigenous communities to inhibit social protest. The economic explanation is that violence meted out by the state and criminal organizations is used to facilitate capital accumulation both by legal means, through the extraction of natural resources, the exploitation of cheap labor, and the establishment of favorable contracts for transnational corporations, and by illegal means, through drug and human trafficking, money laundering, extortion, and the expropriation of community lands.La violencia perpetrada contra los estudiantes de la Escuela Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa por el Estado mexicano constituye una forma extrema de control social y acumulación de capital. La desaparición forzada de los 43 estudiantes puede explicarse en dos dimensiones: la política y la económica. La explicación política es la represión institucional de la protesta social, y la económica es la facilitación de la acumulación de capital tanto por medios legales (la extracción de recursos naturales, la explotación de mano de obra barata y contratos favorables para las empresas transnacionales) como ilegales (el tráfico de drogas y la trata de personas, el lavado de dinero, la extorsión y la expropiación de tierras comunitarias).

    • Authors: Antonio Fuentes Díaz, Daniele Fini
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      The various experiments in community defense of organized groups in Guerrero and Michoacán, Mexico, to confront the insecurity produced by organized crime are occurring in a social setting in which legality and illegality are blurred—a grey area— as a function of regional economic reconfigurations that have fostered violence. The state uneasily tolerates the emergence of armed defense groups in the region by attempting to subject them to the model of citizen participation in security matters. Understanding these groups calls for supplementing current views about their various forms, which focus on their legality/illegality, with an emphasis on the relationship between them and the society and its dominant actors.Los diversos experimentos en defensa comunitaria de grupos organizados en Guerrero y Michoacán, México, para enfrentar la inseguridad producida por el crimen organizado ocurren en un entorno social, un área gris en la que la legalidad y la ilegalidad se difuminan en función de las reconfiguraciones económicas regionales que han fomentado la violencia. El Estado tolera con incertidumbre el surgimiento de grupos de defensa armados en la región al tratar de someterlos a un modelo de participación ciudadana en asuntos de seguridad. Para entender a estos grupos es necesario complementar los puntos de vista actuales sobre las diversas formas que toman, centrados en su legalidad o ilegalidad, con un énfasis en la relación entre ellos y la sociedad con sus actores dominantes.

  • Communal Responses to Structural Violence and Dispossession in
           Cherán, Mexico
    • Authors: Giovanna Gasparello
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Mexico is currently subject to generalized violence due to conflicts between drug cartels, the state, and resource-extraction companies jostling for territorial and economic control. In 2011 and in this context, the inhabitants of the indigenous municipality of Cherán confronted the criminal organization responsible for kidnappings, extortion, and illegal logging in their communal territory. Study of this conflict and the communal responses generated in the peace process reveals that the violence was founded on social inequality and was both cause and effect of the indigenous population’s material and cultural dispossession. The peace formation process involved the valorization of a collective and territorially rooted identity, the strengthening of security and justice practices based on the authority of assemblies, and an incipient interest in the construction of economic alternatives for the local population.Actualmente, México vive una situación de violencia generalizada debido a los conflictos entre los cárteles de droga, el Estado y las empresas de extracción de recursos que luchan por el control territorial y económico. En 2011 y en este contexto, los habitantes del municipio indígena de Cherán se enfrentaron a una organización criminal responsable de secuestros, extorsiones y tala ilegal en su territorio comunal. El estudio de este conflicto y las respuestas comunitarias generadas en el proceso de paz revela que la violencia se fundó sobre la desigualdad social y fue tanto causa como efecto del despojo material y cultural de la población indígena. El proceso de paz implicó la valorización de una identidad colectiva y territorialmente arraigada, el fortalecimiento de las prácticas de seguridad y justicia basadas en la autoridad de las asambleas, y un interés incipiente en la construcción de alternativas económicas para la población local.

  • Violence and Political Participation in Northeastern Guatemala
    • Authors: Saskia Simon
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Since colonial times, Northeastern Guatemala has been at the crossroads of legal and illegal trade routes used by local elites and foreign investors. Organized crime has always prospered there with the complicity and participation of the local authorities, while the United Fruit Company started its first banana plantations there in 1904. Both rested their capital accumulation on governmentalities mixing disciplinary and sovereign power mechanisms as analyzed by Foucault. In response to the impact of these governmentalities, centered on control and violence, the population has developed a tactical subjectivity that presents obstacles to its political participation and collective mobilization.Desde la época colonial, el noreste de Guatemala ha estado en la encrucijada de las rutas comerciales legales e ilegales utilizadas por las élites locales y los inversionistas extranjeros. Allí, el crimen organizado siempre ha prosperado con la complicidad y la participación de las autoridades locales, y la United Fruit Company sembró sus primeros platanares en el territorio en 1904. Ambos bandos sustentaron su acumulación de capital en gubernamentalidades que mezclan mecanismos de poder disciplinario y soberano, tal y como los define Foucault. En respuesta al impacto de estas organizaciones gubernamentales, centradas en el control y la violencia, la población ha desarrollado una subjetividad táctica que presenta obstáculos a su participación política y movilización colectiva.

  • Primitive Accumulation, Mafia Capitalism, and the Campesino Population in
    • Authors: Félix Pablo Friggeri
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      The mafia capitalism currently taking shape in Latin America and with remarkable eloquence in Paraguay is centered largely around agriculture. Two of its key characteristics are violence and cynicism. The cynicism refers to the presentation of violence toward the popular majority as “natural,” disregarding ethical criticism and upholding capitalism as the only possible course, with the result that anything opposed to it must be eliminated in the most effective manner, including violence. This mafia capitalism is solidified by intertwined legal and illegal measures.El capitalismo mafioso que está tomando forma a lo largo de América Latina y con notable elocuencia en Paraguay se centra en gran medida en la agricultura. Dos de sus características clave son la violencia y el cinismo. El cinismo se refiere a la caracterización de la violencia dirigida hacia la mayor parte de la población como algo “natural”, asunto que no toma en cuenta las críticas éticas y defiende el capitalismo como el único camino posible, con el resultado de que todo lo que se opone a este debe ser eliminado de la manera más efectiva, incluyendo a partir de la violencia. Este capitalismo mafioso se solidifica con medidas legales e ilegales entrelazadas.

  • Contesting Mexico’s Necropolitics: Necrogovernance and Subversive
           Necropower in Two Cases
    • Authors: Olof Ohlson
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Mexico’s contentious necropolitics see different stakeholders involved in political struggles for control over the dead. The families of victims of state and corporate violence protest state necrogovernance and corporate necropower, the power to dictate the circumstances of citizens’ and workers’ lives and deaths. Two case studies show how the state and corporations deploy the criminal technique of disappearing bodies as a means of social control and rendering workers expendable and sometimes killable. Social movements counter this with a determined struggle to restore a sense of worth to the victims of violence through public mourning. Their repertoire of collective action has created a subversive necropower that challenges both necrogovernance and corporate necropower.La contenciosa necropolítica de México involucra a distintos grupos de interés que participan en la contienda política por el control de los muertos. Las familias de las víctimas de la violencia de Estado y corporativa protestan contra la necrogobernanza estatal y la necropotencia corporativa, y du poder de dictaminar las circunstancias de vida y muerte de los ciudadanos y trabajadores. Dos estudios de caso muestran cómo el Estado y las corporaciones despliegan la técnica criminal de desaparecer los cuerpos como un medio de control social que hace a los trabajadores prescindibles y a veces matables. Los movimientos sociales responden con una lucha decidida por restaurar un sentido de valor para las víctimas de la violencia a través del duelo público. Su repertorio de acción colectiva ha creado una necropotencia subversiva que desafía tanto a la necrogobernanza como a la necropotencia corporativa.

  • Borderland Political Regimes in Latin America
    • Authors: Haroldo Dilla Alfonso, Karen Hansen Figueroa
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      One of the characteristics of contemporary political geography is the transformation of international borders into resources for capitalist value creation. This has been accompanied by the emergence of new identities and practices that challenge the nationalist doxa. Borderland political regimes seek to account for this complexity as it is expressed in the way in which the nation-states perceive and try to govern these spaces of overlapping territorialities. An analysis of the ways in which Chile, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic perceive their borders and produce regulations and institutional frameworks based on both their particular histories and the requirements of neoliberal capitalist accumulation concludes with a series of proposals for inclusive governance systems that take the aforementioned complexities into account.Una de las características de la geografía política contemporánea es la transformación de las fronteras internacionales en recursos para la creación de valor capitalista. Esto se ha acompañado de la aparición de nuevas identidades y prácticas que desafían la doxa nacionalista. Los regímenes políticos fronterizos tratan de dar cuenta de esta complejidad, expresada en la forma en que los Estados-nación perciben y tratan de gobernar estos espacios de supuestas territorialidades. Un análisis de las maneras en que Chile, Colombia y República Dominicana perciben sus fronteras y emiten regulaciones y marcos institucionales basados tanto en sus historias nacionales particulares como en los requisitos de la acumulación capitalista neoliberal concluye con una serie de propuestas para sistemas de gobierno inclusivos que tomen en cuenta las complejidades antes mencionadas.

  • Social Mobility in Chilean Youth and Their Parents: A Generational
           Analysis from the Perspective of Social Reproduction
    • Authors: Luis Miguel Rodrigo, Mauricio Oyarzo
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Recent studies on Chile agree that the country’s youth enjoy greater social mobility than previous generations. This has been attributed either to their greater access to higher education or to life-cycle effects on occupation. A test of these two hypotheses by estimating the socioeconomic positions of four generations of Chileans using a model of analysis based on the social reproduction paradigm shows that younger generations of Chileans have a lower level of social inheritance than the rest of the population only during their initial years in the labor market. Therefore, the greater social mobility observed in them is temporary and is explained by life-cycle effects on occupation.Estudios recientes sobre Chile coinciden en que la actual juventud chilena goza de una mayor movilidad social que las generaciones anteriores. Esto se ha atribuido a su mayor acceso a la educación superior o a los efectos del ciclo de vida en la ocupación. Aquí se examinan estas dos hipótesis a partir de una aproximación en torno a las posiciones socioeconómicas de cuatro generaciones chilenas. Se utiliza un modelo analítico asentado en el paradigma de la reproducción social, el cual nos muestra que las generaciones más jóvenes tienen un grado de herencia social más bajo que el resto de la población tan sólo durante sus primeros años como participantes en el mercado laboral. Por lo tanto, su mayor movilidad social es temporal y se explica a partir de los efectos del ciclo de vida en la ocupación.

  • Racializing Region: Internal Orientalism, Social Media, and the
           Perpetuation of Stereotypes and Prejudice against Brazilian Nordestinos
    • Authors: Rodrigo Serrao
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Consideration of the prevalence of regional prejudice in Brazil shows how stereotypical assumptions about culture, race, and socioeconomic class inform regional biases. A comparison of discriminatory social media posts after the 2014 and 2018 presidential elections reveals similarities in most of the racist and xenophobic language in the two election cycles but an increase in references to Venezuela and Cuba and heightened animosity toward the Partido dos Trabalhadores in 2018. Racism directed by social media users against nordestinos is part of a historical continuum of oppression fostered by regional stereotypes and failed public policies that have real-life implications for Brazil’s nordestinos.A consideração da prevalência de preconceito regional no Brasil mostra a centralidade de premissas estereotipadas sobre cultura, raça e classe socioeconômica. Uma comparação de publicações discriminatórias nas mídias sociais após as eleições presidenciais de 2014 e 2018 revela semelhanças na maior parte da linguagem racista e xenofóbica nos dois ciclos eleitorais, mas um aumento nas referências à Venezuela e Cuba e maior animosidade em relação ao Partido dos Trabalhadores em 2018. Racismo dirigido por usuários de mídia social contra os nordestinos faz parte de um continuum histórico de opressão promovida por estereótipos regionais e políticas públicas fracassadas que têm implicações na vida real para os nordestinos do Brasil.

  • Reframing Identities in Argentine Documentary Cinema: The Emergence of
           LGBT People as Political Subjects in Rosa Patria (Loza, 2008–2009) and
           Putos peronistas (Cesatti, 2011)
    • Authors: Guillermo Olivera
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Using film semiotics, queer studies, and discourse theory as developed by Laclau, Mouffe, and Žižek, an enunciative and rhetorical analysis of Rosa Patria (Pink Motherland) (Santiago Loza, 2008–2009) and Putos peronistas, cumbia del sentimiento (Peronist Faggots, Cumbia Feeling) (Rodolfo Cesatti, 2011) points to the changes in the political and cinematic frames that have enabled the transformation of LGBT people into political subjects in the context of the Argentine documentary of the twenty-first century. The metaenunciative and metadiegetic marks made evident by reframing processes in audiovisual texts can be read as a discursive transition from “element” to “moment” and as cinematic-reflexive symbolization of the traumatic event posed by the dislocation or antagonism that institutes these identities in situated local contexts, contexts contemporary with the struggles for diverse sexual citizenship that led to the promulgation of Argentina’s Equal Marriage (2010) and Gender Identity (2012) Laws.Utilizando herramientas de la semiótica del cine, la teoría queer y la teoría del discurso de Laclau, Mouffe y Žižek, un análisis enunciativo y retórico de Rosa Patria (Santiago Loza, 2008 -2009) y Putos peronistas, cumbia del sentimiento (Rodolfo Cesatti, 2011) se concentra en cambios de marcos políticos y cinematográficos que hacen posible la transformación de las personas LGBT en sujetos políticos en el documental argentino del siglo XXI. Esas marcas metaenunciativas y metadiegéticas que los procesos de re-enmarque dejan en los textos audiovisuales pueden leerse como pasaje discursivo de “elemento” a “momento” y como simbolización cinematográfico-reflexiva del acontecimiento traumático de la dislocación o antagonismo que instituye a dichas identidades en contextos locales situados, contextos contemporáneos a las luchas por una ciudadanía sexual diversa conducentes a la promulgación de la Ley de Matrimonio Igualitario (2010) y la Ley de Identidad de Género (2012).

  • Precarious Work in Argentina, 2003–2017
    • Authors: Juan Cruz Ferre
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Based on data from Argentina’s Permanent Household Survey, the method of analysis used in this study permits the rate of precarious work in Argentina in 2017 and its trend in 2003–2017 to be determined more accurately than before. The figure in 2017 was 47 percent, and women, younger people, the less educated, and the foreign-born were more likely to have precarious jobs. A separate analysis of the categories that constitute precarious work provides unique insight on the interrelation among employment relations, economic growth, and labor-capital conflict. Lastly, the findings provide support for the existence of a range of productivity levels across firms instead of a sharp distinction between formal and informal sectors of the economy and a continuous inverse relationship with precarious employment.En base a datos de la Encuesta Permanente de Hogares de Argentina, el método de análisis utilizado en este estudio permite determinar la tasa de trabajo precario en Argentina en 2017 y su tendencia en 2003–2017 con mayor precisión que antes. La cifra en 2017 fue del 47 por ciento, y las mujeres, los jóvenes, los menos educados y los nacidos en el extranjero tenían más probabilidades de tener trabajos precarios. Un análisis separado de las categorías que constituyen el trabajo precario proporciona una visión única de la interrelación entre las relaciones laborales, el crecimiento económico y el conflicto laboral-capital. Por último, los hallazgos respaldan la existencia de una gama de niveles de productividad de las empresas del mismo sector en lugar de una distinción clara entre los sectores formales e informales de la economía y una relación inversa continua con el empleo precario.

  • Climate Change, Neoliberalism, and Migration: Mexican Sons of Peasants on

    • Authors: Tamar Diana Wilson
      First page: 20
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Climate change and neoliberal policies in Mexico have been fomenting migration by campesinos and their sons. This migration is primarily internal, to cities and tourist centers, where migrants engage in informal and semi-informal income-generating activities. Interviews with 32 beach vendors, sons of campesinos, in Cabo San Lucas reflect these two drivers of migration: while most reported that they would like to farm, they identified drought and lack of government aid as major difficulties for farmers in their hometowns.El cambio climático y las políticas neoliberales en México han fomentado la migración de campesinos y sus hijos. Esta migración mayoritariamente interna se dirige a ciudades y centros turísticos, donde los migrantes participan en actividades informales y semiformales para generar ingresos. Entrevistas con 32 vendedores de playa en Cabo San Lucas, todos ellos hijos de campesinos, reflejan el efecto de los mencionados impulsores migración: aunque la mayoría de los entrevistados informó que le gustaría cultivar sus tierras, la sequía y la falta de apoyo gubernamental se mencionaron como dos grandes obstáculos a la agricultura en sus lugares de origen.

  • Female Bodies and Globalization: The Work of Indigenous Women Weavers in

      First page: 36
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Women producers and sellers of textile crafts in Zinacantán, Chiapas, Mexico, use one of the few resources they have to enter business: craft production as informal, invisible, and underpaid work. Taking the body as the axis of analysis, three distinct areas of transformation of indigenous women producers by tourism may be identified: the private and domestic body of craftswomen, the social and public body as an icon of ethnic difference, and the commodified body as an extension of the touristic object. The analysis shows that tourism and participation in the international market strengthen gender, class, and ethnic differences and contribute to the perpetuation of existing inequalities.Las productoras y vendedoras de artesanía textil en Zinacantán, Chiapas, México, utilizan uno de los pocos recursos que tienen participar en el mercado: la producción artesanal como trabajo informal, invisible y mal remunerado. Tomando el cuerpo como eje de análisis, identificamos tres áreas distintas de transformación ejercidas por el turismo sobre las productoras indígenas: el cuerpo privado y doméstico de las artesanas, el organismo social y público como icono de la diferencia étnica, y el organismo mercantilizado como una extensión del objeto turístico. El análisis muestra que el turismo y la participación en el mercado internacional fortalecen las diferencias de género, clase y etnia y contribuyen a la perpetuación de las desigualdades existentes.

  • Fast-track Redevelopment and Slow-track Regularization: The Uneven
           Geographies of Spatial Regulation in Mexico City
    • Authors: Jill Wigle
      First page: 56
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      Some of the increasingly evident contradictions between spatial planning and social policy in Mexico City are apparent in the way land use regulation folds into and articulates with exclusion and marginality. In downtown areas, regulatory approvals and various planning measures have facilitated the escalation of land and housing prices and more exclusionary forms of urban development. At the periphery, land use regulation now conditions access to urban services, property titles, and even some social programs for settlement areas designated as “informal.” Comparing the state’s role in planning at these distinct sites uncovers a pattern of selective and uneven spatial regulation in different socioeconomic territories of the city, characterized by “fast-track” development approvals in downtown areas and “slow-track” regularization of settlements in peripheral areas. The analysis suggests how this pattern of uneven spatial regulation contributes to (re)producing urban space in ways that call into question the local government’s stated support for the “right to the city.”Las geografías desiguales de la regulación espacial ponen de manifiesto algunas de las contradicciones cada vez más evidentes entre la planificación espacial y la política social en la Ciudad de México. En las áreas del centro, las aprobaciones regulatorias y varias medidas de planificación han facilitado el aumento de los precios de la tierra y la vivienda y formas más excluyentes de desarrollo urbano. En la periferia, la regulación del uso de la tierra ahora condiciona el acceso a servicios urbanos, títulos de propiedad e incluso algunos programas sociales para áreas de asentamiento designadas como “informales.” Comparar el papel del estado en la planificación en estos sitios distintos revela un patrón de regulación espacial selectiva y desigual en diferentes territorios socioeconómicos de la ciudad, caracterizados por aprobaciones “fast-track” de desarrollo en áreas del centro y regularización “slow-track” de asentamientos en áreas periféricas. El análisis se centra en cómo la regulación del uso de la tierra se enreda y articula con la exclusión y la marginalidad y cómo la regulación espacial desigual contribuye a (re) producir espacio urbano de manera que cuestione el apoyo declarado del gobierno local por “el derecho a la ciudad.”

  • Enrique Mendieta and the Ghosts of Leftism Past: The Aftereffects of
           Mexico’s Dirty War in Élmer Mendoza’s Detective Fiction
    • Authors: Michael K. Walonen
      First page: 77
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      The continuance of the revolutionary strife of Mexico’s dirty war into the present day, both as a legacy and in the form of its survivors, resonates strongly in the work of the novelist Élmer Mendoza. Mendoza’s early novel Janis Joplin’s Lover uses its protagonist to portray a 1970s Mexico torn between a revolutionary path of collective social amelioration and the corrupt, mercenary self-interest embodied by Mexican narco-traffickers, with the country pushed toward the latter through the repression of student activists by the Mexican state. Mendoza’s five subsequent novels that center on the exploits of detective Lefty Mendieta focus on the fallout from this period of repression, using the figure of Lefty’s brother Enrique, a former leftist guerrilla, to represent a lost (but not totally lost) egalitarian and socially just alternative to the neoliberal political economy that has ravaged the living conditions of most Mexicans for almost four decades.La continuada lucha revolucionaria en el marco de la guerra sucia que ha caracterizado a México hasta la hoy en día, tanto como legado a la vez que en la presencia de sus sobrevivientes, resuena poderosamente en la obra del novelista Élmer Mendoza. La primera novela de Mendoza, Janis Joplin’s Lover, utiliza a su protagonista para retratar a México en la década de 1970, dividido entre un camino revolucionario de mejora social colectiva y el corrupto y mercenario interés propio encarnado por los narcotraficantes mexicanos; el país se ve empujado en esta última dirección a través de la represión de los activistas estudiantiles por parte del Estado. Las cinco novelas posteriores de Mendoza, centradas en las hazañas del detective Lefty Mendieta, se centran en las consecuencias de este período de represión y emplean la figura de Enrique, el hermano de Lefty, un ex guerrillero izquierdista, para representar la pérdida (si bien no total) de una alternativa igualitaria y socialmente justa en oposición a la economía política neoliberal que mermado las condiciones de vida de la mayoría de los mexicanos durante casi cuatro décadas.

      The disappearance of 43 students of the teachers’ training college at Ayotzinapa in 2014 has inspired a broad social movement. Ethnographic work and interviews conducted at several of the demonstrations to show solidarity with the parents of the students reveal that their forced disappearance has been framed by participants as a collective cultural trauma. The politicization of this trauma has led to a change in the relationship between citizens and public institutions and produced a new social narrative.La desaparición de 43 estudiantes de la escuela de formación de profesores en Ayotzinapa en 2014 inspiró un amplio movimiento social. Trabajo etnográfico y entrevistas realizadas durante varias de las manifestaciones para mostrar solidaridad con los padres de los estudiantes revelan que su desaparición forzada ha sido enmarcada por los participantes como un trauma cultural colectivo. La politización de este trauma ha llevado a un cambio en la relación entre los ciudadanos y las instituciones públicas y ha producido una nueva narrativa social.

      First page: 103
      Abstract: Latin American Perspectives, Ahead of Print.
      The social and environmental effects of industrial agriculture in the San Quintín Valley of Baja California are closely related. An environmental history of the valley from European contact to the present demonstrates that modern schemes of globalized agricultural production erode biological diversity while fostering labor exploitation. A critical model drawing on the concept of environmental violence— historically structured asymmetrical power relations that are reproduced and maintained to foster capital accumulation—describes how neoliberalism shapes and exploits agro-industrial landscapes and livelihoods in San Quintín to produce a crisis of underproduction.Los efectos sociales y ambientales de la agricultura industrial en el Valle de San Quintín de Baja California están estrechamente relacionados. Una historia ambiental del valle, desde el contacto europeo hasta el presente demuestra que los esquemas modernos de producción agrícola globalizada erosionan la diversidad biológica al mismo tiempo que fomentan la explotación laboral. Un modelo crítico basado en el concepto de violencia ambiental (relaciones de poder asimétricas históricamente estructuradas que se reproducen y mantienen para fomentar la acumulación de capital) describe cómo el neoliberalismo da forma a y explota los paisajes agroindustriales y los medios de vida en San Quintín, augurando hacia una crisis de subproducción.
