THEORETICAL APPROACH TO THE INTEGRATION OF IMMIGRANTS AT THREE LEVELS: UNDERSTANDING, ADAPTATION AND INCLUSION
Política, Globalidad y Ciudadanía
This article, as an essay, aims to develop a proposal for understanding the integration of immigrants at three levels: through the emergence of a complex comprehensive scheme of individuals; adaptation to artifacts and processes; and inclusion in the basic functional systems of society. The essay seeks to propose a new thesis on integration, from a sociological perspective, through analysis and conceptual articulation from various authors (P. Bourdieu, A. Giddens, A. Schütz, M. Walzer, Ch.
... M. Walzer, Ch. Taylor, among others). The conclusions respond to the need for mutual understanding in the processes of understanding, generating citizen scenarios that favor this process, recognizing the contribution of the migratory phenomenon, in terms of intercultural integration, tolerance and recognition of culture in egalitarian and fair actions. Integration implies a teaching and learning process about situations that occur in a pragmatic way in everyday life, where experts have a fundamental role. The inclusion of immigrants in society will facilitate their integration, which will depend both on the functioning of the systems, as well as on the demands of the immigrants themselves.
