HALPERN, Gerardo. Communicational contributions to a debate on citizenship and migration. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1514-6871.
This paper presents a set of descriptions and interpretations ofthe Ápe Paraguay experience, a political-communicational project carried outin Argentina and Paraguay by a group of Paraguayan migrants since 2008 which has gradually grown due to the inclusion of members from other parts of the world. It is their political statement, their website content and also their Internet radio broadcasting and other initiatives using and not using information and communication technologies that has led us to put forward a number of concerns about the way in which citizenship is currently produced and the political nature of the organization of Paraguayan migrants in different parts of the planet These concerns have allowed us to link the organizational aspects of contemporary Paraguayan migrants with the production and demand of emerging identities and the use of media as a form of construction of legitimate subjects there where the history of Paraguay has created remoteness and punishment. In short, from some contributions of Cultural Anthropology and the field of Communication Sciences, we are trying to recover some initiatives for the production of citizenship that bring to light both the inner conflictivityof the migration processes and the migrants´ communicational struggle in their demands for the access to rights.
