Human mobility and its stakes play a relevant role in the contemporary debate about migration from the political, societal and media perspective. The questionings brought by it, indeed, must be framed on the one hand, within the current issues on the free circulation of populations, capitals, goods and information. Whilst, on the other hand, it is important to debate it taking into consideration the borders closure, the conditioned circulation and the limited mobility, that is to say the securitization of migration flows.
This colloquium will approach the conditions that lead people to migrate (kind of migration, unemployment, violence and conflict), their conditions during the journey (types of material and sexual exploitation) and the ones existing in the country of destination when migrants have to deal with the new reality (legislation, violence and integration processes).
