SANCHEZ SALDANA, Kim  and  SALDANA RAMIREZ, Adriana. Shelter for migrant workers in Morelos. A space for exchange and recognition. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.49, pp.117-137.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-5538.

Based on the trajectory of the Shelter of Migrant Agricultural Laborers in Atlatlahucan, Morelos from 1996 to 2011, in the application of social programs, as well as the experiences of co-responsibility of actors involved, the limits and scope offered by this type of temporary housing are discussed as a space to implement social promotion strategies, and at the same time allowing exchange and recognition relationships between workers, producers and the local population. The shelter is far from constituting a representative case; however, it will try to show that the conditions that have allowed its modest but significant achievements can be recovered locally and set precedents for the design of alternative public policies in similar places.

Keywords : migrant farm workers; temporary housing; recognition relationships; peasant coalitions; shelter.
