The last quarter century has witnessed an increase in the rate of international migration and the rise of new economic, political and cultural processes associated with population displacement throughout the world. These processes have led to the emergence of new theoretical frameworks for analyzing and explaining international migration, as well as the implementation of new economic and social development policies in migrant sending and receiving countries.

In addition to the traditional patterns of international migration, defined by the migrant's place of residence (seasonal or temporary, if the migrant maintained his or her residence in the country of origin, versus permanent if there was a change in the country of residence), scholars have identified new patterns, including transnational migration. Transnational migration is associated with the emergence of new (transnational or transterritorial) social spaces, where national boundaries are blurred, and new identities and forms of belonging develop, which are not based on residing within a specific national territory. At the same time, new subjects and social actors have emerged. In addition to engaging in innovative forms of work, livelihood and survival, they constitute a new political force with a demonstrated capacity to engage with political authorities, and a history of participation in local, plurilocal and transnational development projects.

Similarly, with the globalization of the world economy, processes of regional economic, political, social and cultural integration are having diverse repercussions on the movement of migrants and refugees. In this context, debates have arisen concerning the opening of borders, multiculturalism, and the role of migrants in processes of regional economic integration. What is clear is that global employment opportunities favor global-professional elites, but are closed to millions of workers classified as low- or medium-skilled. In this sense, economic and cultural globalization, the diffusion of new communications and transportation technologies, and time-space compression may be creating a global village. The problem is that citizenship in this global village is not accessible to all.


The purpose of this Colloquium is to generate a broad and open debate around the new economic, political, social and cultural dimensions of international migration, within a framework that recognizes the processes of regional integration that operate in various world regions. We understand this integration to be a result of both processes of economic globalization, as well as processes of transnationalization "from below",Â? in which migrants may play a key role. We hope to receive proposals for papers that address the experience of Mexico-U.S. migration as well as other regions such as the Caribbean, Central America, South America, Europe and Asia.
