This chapter discusses the migrant civil society of Mexico and attempts to contribute to a rethinking of the relationship between rural out-migration and collective action. It is determined that migration to the cities in Mexico and to the United States has long been a pathway to escape the landlessness and the weakening of smallholder agriculture. It concludes that the Mexican migrant civil society in the United States is just beginning to emerge, although the future of rural Mexico has yet to be imagined jointly.

Keywords:   migrant civil society, Mexico, rural out-migration, collective action, migration, United States, landlessness, smallholder agriculture, rural Mexico
