MetadataShow full item record
Through interviews and observations, the purpose of this project was to investigate the impact (e)migration is having in Santa Martha Latuvi, Oaxaca Mexico. Latuvi is currently experiencing transformation in its economy and political/ organizational structure due to high (e)migration rates in the community. Change in the economy has been beneficial while the political/ organizational structure stands at a disadvantage due to decrease in population. As a result, the community has implemented rules for emigrants, which enable them to remain a part of the community while absent from Latuvi. However, when emigrants do not fulfill these rules, their citizenship in the community is taken away.
