about this item

Bolivian Labor Immigrants' Experiences in Argentina examines the projects, trajectories, and everyday lives of Bolivian immigrants. It gathers research results of specialists who have studied the various ways in which these immigrants participate in certain labor markets in different urban and rural areas of Argentina. It covers many aspects, including future prospects, and the influence of the juxtaposition of various inequalities. It highlights the ways in which xenophobic mechanisms naturalize harsh working and living conditions. Bolivian Labor Immigrants' Experiences in Argentinahighlights key issues regarding the structural factors that pattern the integration of Bolivian immigrants in certain labor markets segmented by inequalities based on class, gender, “ethny-race”, nationality, and migratory and legal status. It provides ethnographic insights about the various ways in which Bolivian immigrants experience harsh living and working conditions. Finally, it helps to understand that these men and women are capable of dealing with oppressive situations and of performing particular ways of resistance.The focus on labor migrants does not lead to a reductionist economic analysis of their trajectories, experiences, and prospects for the future. On the contrary, they are studied from a holistic anthropological approach, considering that migrants make sense of their territorial mobility from complex points of view anchored in their life experiences. Therefore, contributors consider that migration is a process that involves economic, social, cultural, and political dimensions
