Presentation

L’objet de cet atelier est l’étude de la manière dont les migrants gèrent les dettes et obligations morales et économiques qui accompagnent l’aval et l’amont de leur migration. L’étude des relations de dépendance entre les travailleurs migrants et les différents acteurs qui bénéficient de leur travail sera privilégiée (notamment les parents qui reçoivent les versements, les pourvoyeurs de crédit et agents de la migration, ainsi que les patrons, souteneurs et employeurs). Seront ainsi abordées un ensemble de relations sociales qui permettent de poser la question du consentement et la contrainte dans toute sa complexité.

This workshop explores the relationship between people who migrate in order to work and the economic, affective and moral debts and obligations that inspire, enable and result from their migrations. We seek to examine relationships of interdependence between migrating laborers and the various people who benefit or profit from their labor, including but not limited to the kin to whom they send remittances, creditors, loan sharks and smugglers, and their partners, procurers, masters, or employers. As such, we are interested in exploring relationships that span the range of possibilities of, and blur clear-cut distinctions between consent and coercion.
