What is your particular interest in the project?

"ForMOVe connects very well with the topic of my master thesis which I am currently writing. My thesis is about the perspective of central american female migrants on the migrant caravans that took place in october 2018 and the following months. This new form of collective migration may also be an answer to the strong interconnection of migration and organized violence in Mexico as a transit country and the effects that organized violence has on migration trayectories in general and for women specifically."
