ABIUSO, Federico Luis. A mode of construction of otherness. Representations of the Argentinian Federal Police about the nexus between South American migration and crime. Delito soc. [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.42, pp.103-128. ISSN 0328-0101.

In this paper I will explore a modality of development of otherness. It will be of interest to study the representations upon the existing nexus between South American migration and crime on behalf of the Argentinian Federal Police. To do so, we will draw different theoretical backgrounds and previous researches, and the analysis will be done using the strategy of Grounded theory. In this way I propose to reconstruct, through the application of the constant comparison method, within the empirical domain of the Police and Criminalistics Journal, the categories and labels refereed to the mentioned links, especially considering that in that fashion it becomes possible to acknowledge which would be some of the dominant representations and stereotypes produced there. Moreover, highlighting that its existence and diffusion within an institutional publishing and the configuration of a determined police identity, may constitute the initial kickoff of a process of rendering the migrant a criminal.

Keywords : Categories; Labels; South American migration; Crime; Argentinian Federal Police.
