SP089 - Migrant struggles for social justice
Convened by Maria del Carmen Villarreal Villamar, Enara Echart Muñoz (both from Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO), Brazil) and Marta Carballo de la Riva (Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), Spain)
Social justice as the backbone of peace and an essential component of sustainable human development, places migration as key element in the construction of contemporary society. We want to analyze experiences that rescue the agency and autonomy of the migrant population and that consider their struggles, forms of mobilization, solidarity and their contributions in the creation of more inclusive and equitable societies. In that way, this workshop is open to proposals from academics, social organizations and grassroot movements that present or analyze these struggles in all their diversity around the world.
