Abstract

[automatically translated] The instruments adopted to govern foreign immigration adequate? What is the balance after forty years of migration in terms of integration? You can talk about a racist in our country? This work stems from the desire of the authors to provide concrete answers to these questions. The volume is the result of a reflection of many voices on economic, political and social dynamics by virtue of which it requires migrants to conform to an ideal immigrant model that forces them to accept a process of integration imposed from above, rather than negotiated. The reduction of the foreign presence only to public order problem, the existence of a media apparatus that feeds the prejudices against migrants and Roma, as well as the adoption of security policies put in place to hide the frustrations arising from the increasing poverty of ever broader layers of the population and the use of the law to mark the division between citizens and foreigners are the main thematic areas on which focuses the 'attention to the authors. The overall picture that emerges from reading these essays is alarming. The authors, albeit from different angles converge in affirming not only as, in our country, the reconstruction of the social bond is taking place on the basis of exclusive memberships, rather than on the concepts of citizenship and human right; as well as the antagonism between social actors with unequal legal status is causing a conflict with a potential of unprecedented violence, the consequences of which the authors invite us to reflect. For these reasons, the analyzes and reflections given in this book are, without a doubt, a useful tool of interpretation of what happened in our country in terms of dynamics triggered by migratory processes, but also a call to reverse the route counteracting the dangerous racist drifts with insertion models with a more genuine cultural pluralism, political and media. ************************************************** ************************************************** ********** Are the policies used to govern immigration adequate?
