Overlooked and Unprotected: Central American Indigenous Migrant Women in Mexico



We are pleased to announce the publication of Overlooked and Unprotected: Central American Indigenous Migrant Women in Mexico by Esmeralda Lopez and Melissa Hastings in the New York University Journal of International Law and Politics. Vol 48, Summer 2016, Number 4, which includes research based on USCRI’s work with unaccompanied immigrant children.

This article examines whether the existence of legal pluralism in Mexico provides any additional protection for Central American indigenous migrant women and finds that indigenous justice systems have a limited ability to assist migrants.  Alternative avenues to promote protection are considered with the inclusion of indigenous rights organizations as one finding.
