Although it is not the subject of its exclusive research, the projects currently under way or planned by the Group are addressed to the growing criminalization of people socially, politically and legally labeled as immigrants. While migrants are fundamental players in a globalized world, their institutional treatment of migrations continues to be within the framework of current state spaces. The administrative actions usually are elaborated denying to the immigrant his character of political and social subject.
