Scapegoating of People and Groups

In this tenth blog post, I depart from the analyzes by René Girard (1988, 1997, 2001) and Levine (2011) to reflect upon the scapegoat dynamics that affect individuals and groups – in a spectrum that ranges from particular family dynamics that exclude certain individuals, unfavorable school and work contexts, to the social exclusion of entire groups of people, as it is often the case of certain categories of migrants, or...

UNESCO: Reimagining Our Education’s Futures Together.

  In this ninth blog post, I start from the most recent UNESCO report on Education (2021) and Nóvoa’s reflections (2021, 2022) on the changes registered in educational institutions in the post-Covid-19 pandemic scenario. Positing the possibility of a disaggregation of universities via entrepreneurialization and AI, this author proposes them as a place par excellence for teacher training (albeit not the only one). I suggest that, if this disaggregation does...

Media Coverage, IT/New Media/’Ethnic Media’, Science Communication and Terminological Issues in Migration Studies.

In this eight blog post, I will examine the key-role played by media coverage, not only while shaping general attitudes towards migrants, but also while broadcasting and conveying notions associated with particular competing moral economies. I will discuss terminological issues and the specificity of some of the results achieved on the field of migration studies, including some of my own results on IT/new media usage by specific groups of migrants. ...

For a Sociology of Science

In this seventh blog post, I will analyze the role of science in the light of the pertinent considerations made by Pierre Bourdieu (2000, 2001) in this regard more than 20 years ago. In fact, this author thought about education, intellectuals and academia at least since 1982 (40 years ago) and the publication of his Homo Academicus, in 1984. I will also reflect on some more recent notes made by...

Ambrosini (2022): Moral Economy, Deservingness, Competing Moral Economies and Immigration Policies.

In this sixth blog post, I will examine the connection between the concepts of moral economy, deservingness, competing moral economies and concrete immigration policies based on the analyses provided by Maurizio Ambrosini (2021, 2022). I will proceed by bridging them with the general use of time as a tool in migration governance (temporalities, uncertainties, othering processes, protection and oppression logics).  © Alexandra Pereira, CECC, UCP, 2022 * Cover Image Creative...

Our Common Home: The New Juridico-Political Category of ‘Climate Refugees’

In this fifth blog post, I will examine IOM’s – International Organization for Migration recurrent stance on how more measures are needed to protect climate migrants and climate refugees around the world and its relationships with both new research lines on climate migrants being created and developed by migration research institutes around the globe (from New Zealand to Germany and Canada) and the debate around the need for the recognition...

The Temporal Turn in Migration Studies

In this fourth blog post, I will examine different perspectives on the so-called temporal turn in migration studies by describing its origins, main characteristics and protagonists, together with the main recent tendencies in research focusing on time and migration.   © Alexandra Pereira, CECC, UCP, 2022 * Cover Image Creative Commons License Type:    According to Melanie Griffiths (2022), states govern through temporal rationalities: immigration policies are littered with temporal considerations...

Recognition and Forms of Disrespect

This third blog post will continue my reflection on issues pertaining migrant women, integration and discrimination topics. I will propose here a special focus on the general forms of disrespect based on Axel Honnet’s (1992-2021) perspective concerning recognition theories and also on the multiple ways how those forms of disrespect and misrecognition or non-recognition might impact human beings and relationships. Females, namely migrant women, are especially concerned – although they...
