Abstract: "The paper of Leticia Durand and Rosalva Landa points to a crucial set of problems in rural areas of developing countries. We cannot understand today the dynamics of rural communities without taking migration into consideration. Since the decade of the sixties, migration has been an important issue in the anthropological and sociological literature. This literature raises the question of the consequences of migration for the social and cultural dynamics of the peasant families and communities. This question has received numerous answers depending on the theoretical approach. Mainly, during the early years, migration was clearly associated with modernization and acculturation. Later, new research results demonstrated the complexity and the wide and contradictory range of social, economical, political, and cultural consequences provoked by migration. And only for the last decade, has migration has been discussed in relation with management of natural resources, common property, and collective governance traditions."
