Main Article Content

Return migration has been named as one of the causes behind the change
observed since 2008 in the historical pattern of Mexico-US immigration
(Passel, Cohn and González-Barrera, 2012). Many academic
meetings have been organized trying to understand its implications for
theoretical, empirical and policy studies. This special issue contains
some of the research presented in meetings organized at Universidad
Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (UPAEP) in 2017 and 2019.
Because the different investigations presented at the two conferences
keep a similar focus on migration and its ramifications into return
migration, remittances and entrepreneurship, but presented multiple
views and methods from the Social Sciences and Humanities, about
topics related to regional and sectorial studies, it was decided jointly
by the group of specialists that worked in these topics that a collective
work should be published in a peer reviewed journal that would allow
us to present the work as close as it was planned. Paradigma Económico
is the journal that allowed us to present our collective work as close as it
was originally presented in the conferences, at the same time that each
paper went through a rigorous double blinded process. Because of this,
we give special thanks to Leobardo de Jesús Almonte for its encouragement
and support to go through all the lengthy process of editing a peer
reviewed special number.
