Migrations and Work : Articulate migration and work in a critical perspective of analyzes of migration in the context of globalization and resurgence of the violence of racial boundaries.

Interest in migration issues has increased considerably over the last decade with three impetus: the first is linked to the economic and labor market globalization of the last few years and to the intensification of the circulation which gives a Visibility to the migratory phenomenon and extirpates old North/South schemes; The second is linked to the transnational circulation of knowledge on these issues, to the confrontation of approaches between national traditions and to the disciplinary and transdisciplinary institutionalization of research on migration, and the third is the involvement of researchers from Migrations or researchers of "minorities" who provide critical insight into the theories of intersectionality. But this abundance has as a corollary the fragmentation of the field of study of migrations. Old approaches continue to coexist with new research. 

The point of this session is double :

1- Recovering knowledge by reopening the epistemological and empirical debate, articulating migration and work in a retroactive critical view of analyzes of migration, but also in the context of globalization and the resurgence of racial boundaries in present-day social relations.  
2- Identify the new epistemological and empirical approaches that characterize the labor migration articulation and to emphasize the relevance of the contribution of this phenomenon in the understanding of contemporary social transformations.
