WO CHING, Anna Matteucci. Interseccionalidad y resistencia en Río Azul: mujeres migrantes organizadas en la Asociación Enlaces Nicaragüenses. Inter.c.a.mbio [online]. 2018, vol.15, n.2, pp.219-239. ISSN 1659-4940.

In the community of Río Azul, located in la Union of Cartago, Costa Rica, there is an organization of Nicaraguan migrant women called Asociación Enlaces Nicaragüenses, on which a qualitative research is developed to understand the dynamics that articulate it, as well as the core problem around which these women are organized. For the present article an analysis of the data is proposed based on interviews, participant observation in their homes, meetings, workshops and public activities, review of documents of the organization to understand, from the point of view of the migrants that participate in the research the raison d’être of your organization or what they are organized for. Among the most outstanding results, it can be deduced that this organization functions as an empowerment space through information and training regarding labor and migratory rights. The organization also acts as a space for cultural encounters between women and their families, and as a place for political participation and exercise of citizenship, regardless of the migratory status in Costa Rica.
