Resumen

MUNIZ, Anselmo  y  MOREL, Carlos. Lawlessness as order: Hegemony and immigration policy in the Dominican Republic. Si Somos Americanos [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp.27-48. ISSN 0719-0948.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-09482019000200027.

Since its inception, Dominican immigration policy with respect to Haiti has consisted in a Janus-faced strategy. On the one hand, an increasingly repressive and discriminatory legal order that is prejudiced against Haitian immigrants and their descendents has been established. On the other, extra-institutional exceptions are routinely generated in terms of regulations in order to create an uprooted and forsaken population with a precarious political and legal status. This strategy is a concrete aspect of a political hegemony built on a racist and conservative narrative about citizenship and identity in the Dominican Republic. In order to confront this strategy and redefine Dominican democracy in terms of pluralism, it is necessary to reconfigure the citizenry as the subject of democracy. If we define democracy as the constitution of citizenship following Balibar, or rather as inclusion in a political community of peers, we can expand the horizon of the political struggles of denationalized Dominicans and migrant workers in the country.

Palabras clave : Migration; lawlessness; Dominican-Haitian relations.
