Smallholders worldwide experience processes of displacement from their lands under neoliberal governance. The displacement is often “slow” and driven by decades of agricultural policies and land governance regimes that favor input-intensive agricultural and natural resource extraction at the expense of traditional agrarian practices, markets, and producers. Smallholders struggle to remain viable in the face of these forces, yet they often experience hunger. To persist on the land, families supplement and finance farm production by engaging in international migration. Research carried out in Nicaragua and Guatemala demonstrates how smallholders use migration to address persistent hunger, with the two cases illuminating the centrality of underlying land distribution questions in migration from rural spaces of Central America.
