ROBLEDO SILVESTRE, Carolina  y  GARRIDO CEDENO, Susana. Precarious Lives on Transit: No Land for Mourning. Desacatos [online]. 2017, n.53, pp.150-167. ISSN 2448-5144.

This article discuss about the social distribution of life value and the denial of mourning for Central American migrants missing in transit to the United States through Mexico. We analyze the social and political weight of collective mourning as a space where acknowledgment frames are widened against the silence that excludes and marginalizes certain lives. It is based on testimonies of missing migrant’s relatives and aims to be a contribution to understand the phenomenon of forced disappearance in the context of currently Mexican security policy.

Palabras llave : forced disappearances; migrants; Central America; Mexico; human rights.
