Resumen

GERARDO PEREZ, Sandra Odeth. Confronting migration governmentality: Exodus caravans from the perspective of relatives in search of Honduran missing persons along the migrant route. Entrediversidades rev. cienc. soc. humanid. [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.1, pp.130-154.  Epub 30-Jun-2021. ISSN 2007-7610.  https://doi.org/10.31644/ed.v7.n1.2020.a05.

In this article, I analyze the relationship between the political actions of families of Honduran migrants victims of extreme violence in Mexico and the forms of joint and visible mobilization in the form of caravans that we have known since October 2018. For this porpuse, I gather the impressions about the displacemnt of Honduran migrants in the form of caravan that relatives of dissapeared and executed migrants in their way through México, before this type of mobilization, happened. Highlighting their experience as relatives of victims, I recover the imaginary they have built on “the road through Mexico,” and I pay special attention to the role they give to armed groups linked to drug trafficking and migration policies in the violence against migrants.

From this I investigate the way in which they have understood the mobilization in “caravans” as a strategy that can reduce the risks in Mexico but also as a political action to the extent that it points to the current migration management. Also, I analyze the link between these families and the people of the caravan based on the relationship between their claims for truth and justice and the dignified transit of migrants.

Palabras llave : victims families; community; migration governmentality; criminalization; migrant caravans; families.
