Mexican Migrants as Agents of Development

Marianne H. Marchand is professor of international relations at the University of the Americas, Puebla, Mexico, where she also coordinates the Ph.D. program in International Relations. She is a member of the National System of Researchers (SNI). Her research demonstrates a great concern with the politics of change and (global) restructuring. In her work, Marchand looks to feminist and postcolonial theory and engages in critical explorations of the narratives and practices of development, globalization and regionalization/regionalism. She addresses the politics of change and how global restructuring often leads to increased marginalization and social exclusion. These concerns are reflected in some of her books: Femininsm/Postmodernism/Development (with J. L. Parpart; Routledge, 1995); and Gender and Global Restructuring (with Anne Sisson Runyan; Routledge, 2000).

In addition, Dr. Marchand has been the co-editor of the Ripe Series in Global Political Economy (Routledge) and is currently the co-editor of the Gender in a Global/Local World series with Ashgate. In 2003 she finished the national report to the Dutch parliament on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).

In addition, Marchand recently received funding from the European Union to coordinate the REDESFRO Network on Regionalism, Social Development and Borders. Finally, she is currently coordinating a research project on Migration and Socially Sustainable Development in two communities in Tlaxcala (Mexico) which has culminated in various publications, including Tlaxcala:
