Peoples in Movement

LECTURE by CROP Fellow and University of Bergen SPIRE guest researcher Camilo Pérez-Bustillo.

3 May 2013 | IMER, University of Bergen, Norway

Potential contributions of migrant rights movements of Latin American origin to the emergence of counter-hegemonic paradigms of human rights- comparative aspects in the Euro-African and global context.

Prof. Camilo Pérez-Bustillo is Research Professor in the Graduate Human Rights program at the Universidad Autónoma de la Ciudad de México (UACM, Autonomous University of Mexico City).  

 He will focus on implications of migration flows between Mexico, Central America, and the U.S, with recurrent origins in indigenous communities, and comparative aspects of these experiences, including an emphasis on migrants, refugees, and the displaced, as integral, collective subjects or “peoples in movement".

Together militarization, securitization, criminalization, externalization, and regionalization combine to define the essential elements of the hegemonic paradigm of migration policy which has been imposed on a global, regional, and national scale post-9/11. Most contemporary migration in this context is actually forced migration and convergent with forced displacement, resulting from a combination of state, structural, and systemic violence. 

As a result, migrants are both structurally essential and circumstantially disposable, as African slaves were during the height of the slave trade.
