Chapter 2 moves from more theoretical discussion to focus on lived experiences of uncertain citizenship. Detailed ethnographic accounts are constructed of six “places of uncertain citizenship” inhabited by and passed through by the migrants whose stories form the center of the book. These are the Chile-Bolivia border crossing at Lago Chungará; inner-city migrant tenement housing in Santiago, Chile; warehouses where migrant workers live in Santiago and Arica, Chile; agricultural smallholdings in Arica, Chile; and the peri-urban area of Plan 3000 in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. These places are nodal points within overlapping transnational spaces of citizenship; they are physical manifestations of what it means to live uncertain citizenship.
