The Immigrant as a global citizen

a multicultural erspective



Migration, Global citizenship, Multiculturalism


Migration has ceased to be a problem of the states and has
become an issue of interest of the international community, and therefore
its global perspective, which stems from the risk society and globalization,
must be studied, institutionalized and analyzed in the light of human
rights standards in the context of cosmopolitanism. Moreover, the global
citizenship of the immigrant should be consolidated through the multicultural
perspective and with the prevalence of the right to difference.
The intensification of migratory flows, resulting from human rights violations,
consigns the relevance of the theme, which is justified by the need
to refute the policy of securitization of borders by States, which leads to
the dehumanization of immigrants, treated as minority groups, strangers
and dangerous. Based on the above assertions, it is worth noting that the
general objective of this paper is to analyze the intersectionality between
migration, citizenship and multiculturalism and, in turn, the specific
objective is to analyze the legal institute of global citizenship as a means
of conferring the ability to act to immigrants in the supranational context.
The deductive method was chosen, with the technique of indirect documentation
and the procedure of doctrinal and legislative analysis. As a
result, it is expected to reach, as a result, the verification of the idea that
global citizenship supplants national citizenship and is exercised within
spaces of political and democratic participation that take into consideration
the personality rights of the immigrant, as a subject of international
law. The article will be composed of three chapters, divided as follows:
initially, the paper will analyze migration from a global perspective, then,
it will go into the study of the multicultural perspective of migration and,
finally, it will address the institute of global citizenship of immigrants from
a multicultural perspective. With these objectives, with the methodology
adopted and due to the relevance of the topic, the purpose of the work
is to answer the following problem: is multiculturalism able to guarantee
the means of action to the immigrant so that he is effectively considered
a global citizen?
