Solidarity and Migrations in Latin America: the Case of Brazil – Prof. Karine de Souza Silva

The objective of the course is to identify the peculiarities of the recent international migratory flows to Latin America and to the southern region, to Brazil, whose multiplicities have led to a reconfiguration in the demographic profile and presented new demands for public authorities and public policies. Best practices adopted in Brazil will be presented to share the experience this country has had with the reception of immigrants and refugees. What will distinguish this course is its proposal to ‘speak to’ the world rather than ‘talk about it’. This teaching activity will be based on the valorization of popular knowledge, horizontal cross-cultural dialogues and other experiences.
