Resumen

PALAFOX MOYERS, Carlos Germán; ESPEJEL BLANCO, Joel Enrique  y  VALENZUELA GARCIA, José Ángel. Institutional trust and structural violence in Nogales, Sonora. Región y sociedad [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.spe5, pp.215-248. ISSN 1870-3925.  https://doi.org/10.22198/rys.2017.0.a230.

In Mexico, violence has increased exponentially in recent years. It is a social construct with multifactorial and multicausal elements that must be contained and controlled through prevention measures and citizen participation in order to eradicate it. The objective of this article is to determine the influence of collective action and cooperation, as well as social cohesion and inclusion on institutional trust and, in turn, on structural violence generated by the process of immigration and deportation on the northern border, specifically in the city of Nogales, Sonora. To test the hypotheses, a statistical instrument was applied to a random-stratified sample in the most violent neighborhoods of this border city. Results demonstrated that people show greater trust and solidarity towards public institutions, mainly to local and central governments and law enforcement agencies; however, they show less trust in educational (teachers) and social security institutions (nurses and doctors).

Palabras llave : social capital; institutional confidence; structural violence; citizen participation; partial least squares (PLS) models.
