Lives in Transit

University of California Press

Chapter Two situates lived experiences of violence within a deeper temporal and spatial context of violence across the Americas. Structural forms of violence including the legacies of civil war, neoliberal securitization, and everyday insecurity are all forces that propel mobility from Central America. The chapter suggests a historical continuum where the violence people experience along the journey is not conceptualized as new or unique, but rather a continuation of processes they have known their entire lives.
