Contemporary migrant subjectivities.

The processes of exclusion and inequalities directly linked to global integration and to international political, social and economic crises have had a dramatic impact on contemporary transnational mobility, in particular determining, on the one hand, a heterogeneous intensification of migration, while, on the other, a strengthening of real and symbolic borders migrant subjectivities have to cross.

Such migrant subjectivities are often objectified in institutional interventions, defined according to generic and over-imposed normative references, ascribed to pre-determined social categories, often marginalized or only partially included in the different social contexts within which they move. Recent studies have highlighted how important processes of subjectivation/ de-subjectivation also happen within migratory spaces, in a continuous confrontation between the institutional and social self and us (M. Ambrosini, L’ invasione immaginaria. L’immigrazione oltre i luoghi comuni, Laterza, Roma, 2020; M. Ambrosini, Altri cittadini. Gli immigrati nei percorsi della cittadinanza, Vita e Pensiero, Milano, 2020). In the analysis of these processes, it is important to understand the different national and transnational articulations of migration as these are useful for the critical analysis of wider phenomena related to them, such as globalization, multiculturalism, vulnerability/precariousness, integration and inclusion.
