Migration, today’s topic and always
Migration, legal or not, free or forced, is one of the great subjects of all time. Humanity has been set through millenarian migratory flows. From the ancient world, civilizations of the Mediterranean and the Middle East have emerged and disappeared due to great human migrations. Of course, not all migrations are the same. There are discussions about its benefits and detriments. For example, many governments are trying to either contain or, at times, encourage migration flows. We are not exempt from those who associate migration with the worst social problems. If governments reserve the right to decide who enters their territory, people and families will take care of their own livelihoods and life where possible. Some of the catalytic agents of migration are the economic and developmental inequalities between countries. At present, it has become very common to explain migration as part globalization. The central subject of this event deals with this counterpoint of ideas. There are intranational, international and transnational migrations, which cross borders, real or symbolic, and enrich, but also divide countries, cultures, groups, genres and ethnicities, among others.
