Abstract

This article uses participatory appraisal (PA) in migration studies by presenting illustrative examples of how this approach enriches research conducted in Veracruz, Mexico, on neoliberalism, agrarian transformation and migration. It demonstrates that it facilitates fruitful contrast of community typologies and that it includes underrepresented and marginalised voices such as those of children and youths who are often silent in migration research. It concludes that this approach allows nuanced understandings and theorisation of diverse factors shaping migration and its effects across multiple scales, while also empowering local people as co-producers of knowledge with the possibility of envisaging alternative futures
