Entre las restricciones y la creatividad: migrantes y derechos humanos en Sudáfrica y Tanzania

Beatriz Escobar Cristiani, María del Rayo Ventura

Resumen


En años recientes, los movimientos migratorios se han consolidado como una preocupación fundamental en el mundo. El discurso oficial de muchos países subraya el valor de las migraciones, pero con frecuencia la presencia de migrantes genera distintas formas de rechazo e intentos por limitar sus derechos. Los migrantes han tenido que desarrollar diversas estrategias para enfrentar las restricciones y responder a las violaciones a sus derechos. El presente artículo explora la forma en que estas tendencias se han manifestado en el caso específico de dos países africanos: Sudáfrica y Tanzania. Además, ofrece un análisis comparativo de las experiencias comunes de los migrantes en relación con los derechos humanos y cómo se adaptan a los cambiantes contextos socioeconómicos y políticos en Sudáfrica y Tanzania.

Palabras clave
