SCHAFFHAUSER, Philippe. Agenda versus Agency: A Translation to Public Policy of the Movement of the Ex Braceros in Mexico (1942-1967). Desacatos [online]. 2018, n.57, pp.102-119. ISSN 2448-5144.

This article is about the construction of migratory policies in interactionist and pragmatist, constructivist perspective. It focuses on the study and analysis of the transformation of the farm worker movement-whose origin is the non-payment of a rural retirement fund-in a program of social care to former Mexican migrant workers (1942-1964). It considers that public policies that derive from social mobilization can be analyzed as interactions made claims, of the same translation and constitution of reserve power for political and moral reasons, expressed through various social figures as victims, carriers, translators and owners of “a problem”. In this sense, the movement of the former braceros is a clear example.

Palabras llave : program bracero; public policies; bracero social movement; symbolic interactionism; pragmatism.
