The Study of Migrant Caravans in Mexico

Abstract

The objective of this work is to analyze the most relevant contributions in the field of study of migrant caravans. To achieve this objective, first by way of contextualization, a historical review of the different migrant caravans is made. Second, four key discussions are analyzed to understand this phenomenon: 1) the caravans as a form of mobility, 2) as a social movement, 3) the politicization of these marches by government actors and 4) the media visibility of the caravans and their presence on social media. Likewise, it is highlighted how each of these axes can be strengthened through the analysis of the new migrant caravans and through the comparison between the various marches.
