BONILLA, Alcira Beatriz. (Imagined building of the "other-migrant"). Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2012, n.42, pp.21-34. ISSN 1668-8104.

Starting from the Balibar's assumption that the migrant phenomenon is "the main politic phenomenon of our times" (Balibar, 2005), I introduce a Foucaultian nuance in this sentence, since I consider this phenomenon as a biopolitic one. In fact, the migrant phenomenon makes clear the population, health, education and work policies of the contemporary Nation-States, even if these States are submitted to globalization in all or in a partial form. In this frame, migrations to Argentina during the last forty years, especially there from bordering countries and from the other Latin American countries, show distinctive features in relation to the previous ones, as because ethnic precedence and cultural features, as because theirs locations in the urban conglomerate that gives them most visibility. In this contribution I set out many philosophical questions about the migrant phenomenon. From the intercultural philosophical perspective I maintain that cultures are not fixed entities, but they have a dynamic, historical and negotiated nature. Such locus enuntiationis allows me to know the imagined attributed identities that the technical called "welcome society" expresses in the urban building of the bordering migrant's otherness. I pursue as objective to show the effect of such imagined attributions into the subjectivity vulnerability (building of subjectivity and empowerment) and objectivity one (citizenship's participative exercise) of migrants. For practical purposes, I point to the breach between the migrant legislation, that establishes the migration human right and the current practices that come from racist und xenophobic imaginaries.
