Descripción
Construction of an approach for comprehending the phenomenon of migrationsover the course of human history, focusing exclusively on international flows,leads us to define them, in the way in which they are manifested today, asa consequence of so-called globalization, thought of as the current stage ofdevelopment of the worldwide capitalist system. International migratoryflows constitute sociopolitical and economic changes with local and globalconsequences that are constantly brought into action and deepened under thesway of the globalization process. We consider that it is necessary to address the processes of structural violencethat exist in the urban centers that receive immigrants, along with those identified at regional level. Moreover, the relationship of these processes with different illness processes suffered by individuals belonging to these socioculturally subordinated groups need to be examined. These individuals' lifestyle, work and housing have developed in particular contexts marked by social vulnerability and by concrete situations of risks to health.
