  • The Migratory Experience in the Process of Labor Insertion in the
           Guadalajara Metropolitan Area

    • Abstract: Resumen Objetivo: averiguar cómo los capitales adquiridos (humano, social, económico y cultural) durante la experiencia migratoria en Estados Unidos influyen en el proceso de inserción laboral en la zona metropolitana de Guadalajara. Metodología: se utilizaron técnicas cualitativas de recolección y análisis de datos. Resultados: los hallazgos indican que, si bien los migrantes regresan con al menos una forma de capital, el mercado laboral limita su uso y los obliga a recurrir a otras estrategias o incluso a cambiar de ramo de trabajo. Limitaciones: una revisión más detallada desde la perspectiva generacional y teniendo presente la edad de quien regresa ayudaría a entender el proceso de inserción laboral. Valor: se analiza dicha inserción en la zona metropolitana de Guadalajara teniendo en cuenta la diversidad de los perfiles de los migrantes y el entorno urbano. Conclusiones: los bajos salarios de México influyen en las estrategias de inserción laboral, y el capital social es importante para quienes regresan.Abstract Objective: to explore how the capitals (human, social, economic, and cultural) acquired during the migratory experience in United States, influence the returnees’ process of job placement in the Guadalajara metropolitan area. Methodology: data analysis and collecting qualitative technics were used. Results: findings indicate that returnees got at least one capital form, but the job market limits its use and force the migrants to switch to other strategies and even to change their labor branch. Limitations: a more detailed review from a generational and life cycle perspective and taking into account the returnee’s age could help to understand the insertion process. Value: migrant insertion in the Guadalajara metropolitan area is analyzed considering the migrants’ profile diversity and the urban environment. Conclusions: the low wages in Mexico influence labor insertion strategies, and social capital is important for returnees.
  • The Organizational Field of Agriculture in the Yaqui Valley in Sonora

    • Abstract: Resumen Objetivo: explicar el proceso de estructuración del valle del Yaqui como campo organizacional. Metodología: se realizaron 13 entrevistas, complementadas con notas de campo, instrumentos que recogieron el testimonio de siete organizaciones y el de un asesor jurídico que permitieron construir cuatro mapas analíticos: el de los activos físico-territoriales, el de los actores, el de los conflictos y el de las redes de actores. Resultados: se visualiza el valle como un campo organizacional con el énfasis puesto en los actores agrupados en seis niveles para dar respuesta a las cuatro etapas que DiMaggio y Powell proponen para la estructuración de un campo organizacional: 1) la interacción, 2) las estructuras interorganizacionales, 3) el incremento en la carga de información y 4) el desarrollo de una conciencia mutua. Limitaciones: debido a la diversidad de los actores integrantes del territorio, no ha sido posible considerar a todo el universo y sus posibles relaciones, pero se incluye a la mayoría. Valor: se propone el estudio del territorio como un campo organizacional bajo la perspectiva de los estudios organizacionales. Valor: se propone el estudio del territorio como un campo organizacional bajo la perspectiva de los estudios organizacionales. Conclusiones: los estudios organizacionales y sus líneas de investigación son una alternativa para potenciar el análisis y la comprensión del territorio.Abstract Objective: to explain the Yaqui Valley’s process of structuring as an organizational field. Methodology: 13 interviews were conducted, complemented with observation. These instruments collected the testimony of seven organizations and a legal adviser, which allowed constructing four maps of the physical-territorial assets, the actors, the conflicts, and the actors’ networks. Results: the valley is visualized as an organizational field focused on the actors, which are grouped in six levels to respond the four parts proposed by DiMaggio and Powell for the structuring: 1) interaction, 2) inter-organizational structures, 3) increase in information load, and 4) development of mutual awareness. Results: the valley is visualized as an organizational field focused on the actors, which are grouped in six levels to respond the four parts proposed by DiMaggio and Powell for the structuring: 1) interaction, 2) inter-organizational structures, 3) increase in information load, and 4) development of mutual awareness. Limitations: due to the actors’ and their possible relationships diversity within the territory, it has been not feasible to include the whole universe, but the majority was incorporated. Value: the study of the territory is proposed as an organizational field under the perspective of organizational studies. Conclusions: organizational studies and their lines of research are an alternative to enhance the understanding and analysis of territory.

    • Abstract: Resumen Objetivo: revisar el efecto que tuvieron en 2020 la variación en la actividad económica, el desempleo y la participación en el mercado laboral de las emprendedoras en las entidades federativas de México, en el contexto de la pandemia de COVID-19. Metodología: el estudio se realizó mediante un modelo de clúster jerárquico. Resultados: se establecieron cuatro grupos de entidades federativas, en los cuales los factores mencionados afectaron de forma diferente el emprendimiento de las mujeres. Limitaciones: se considera conveniente ahondar el estudio incorporando variables, como el acceso de las mujeres al financiamiento y la violencia de género. Valor: el estudio aporta referencias actuales que pueden apoyar futuras investigaciones en temáticas de género y de desarrollo regional y mejorar el análisis de las políticas públicas con perspectiva de género desde el ámbito local. Conclusiones: la pandemia ha tenido un efecto negativo en diferentes factores que determinan la participación de las emprendedoras: se ha verificado un retroceso considerable en dicha participación en comparación con la que había en 2019, sobre todo para las empleadoras.Abstract Objective: to review the impact of the variation in economic activity, unemployment, and the participation in the labor market in 2020, into the positioning of women entrepreneurs in the states of Mexico, in the context of the pandemic caused by the COVID-19. Methodology: the study was carried out using a hierarchical cluster model. Results: four groups of states were established, in which the mentioned factors affected women’s entrepreneurship in different ways. Limitations: it would be convenient to deepen the study by adding variables such as women's access to financing and gender violence into the model. Value: the study provides current references that can support future research on gender issues and regional development, as well as improve the analysis of public policies with a gender perspective from the local level. Conclusions: the pandemic has negatively impacted different factors that determine the participation of women entrepreneurs, showing a significant setback in such participation compared to how it was in 2019, mainly for women employers.

Metodología: es un estudio exploratorio que utiliza la combinación de los enfoques cualitativo y cuantitativo. Resultados: se encontró que la mayoría de los agricultores son personas responsables, aversos al riesgo, que conocen su negocio y que prefieren permanecer sin cambio, lo cual provoca que su elección no sea la mejor. Limitaciones: no se conoce el número de agricultores de Sinaloa y sus municipios debido a la dificultad de acceso a datos precisos, recientes y oficiales. Valor: ofrecer un primer acercamiento a la influencia de sesgos conductuales en la decisión de producción.

           Michoacán, 1930-2020

    • Abstract: Resumen Objetivo: analizar el efecto de las políticas públicas en la configuración de las formas organizativas de la pesca en el lago de Pátzcuaro de 1930 a 2020. Metodología: investigación histórica mediante revisión documental de fuentes primarias, cotejadas con información estadística, y entrevistas estructuradas a los actores sociales clave. Resultados: la intervención sostenida del Estado mexicano ha derivado en una fragmentación social, expresada en diversas formas de organización de los pescadores que hoy proyectan ruptura, pero también reivindicación comunitaria. Valor: el trabajo subraya la importancia de una aproximación de análisis histórico a escala regional en materia de gestión pesquera. Limitaciones: la investigación requiere un enfoque participativo para el análisis de las formas organizativas vigentes. Conclusiones: para la gestión colaborativa de la pesca, es necesario considerar la heterogeneidad del grupo de los pescadores, además del análisis de la interacción entre fuerzas exógenas y endógenas a las localidades pesqueras.Abstract to promote collaborative fisheries management it is essential to consider fisher’s heterogeneity as individuals, moreover the analysis and interaction of exogenous and endogenous forces in the fishing localities.
