What is your particular interest in the project?

"Transit migration of Central America in Mexico is undergoing an unprecedented transformation due to the toughening of US migration policy. Migrants are adapting their strategies and their goals accordingly. I am particularly interested in the State's handling of this transformation and how its actions expose migrants to violence from state and non-state actors."
