In the subsequent international workshop “Convivialidad y Migración” on March 16th, empirical and theoretical perspectives on conviviality in contexts of migration (Brazil, Senegal, Spain, and mainly Mexico) were discussed. Focusing different experiences of mobility (internal displacements, forced and voluntary return migration, labor migration, new collectivities), urban neighborhoods, schools, festivities, sports, video productions and employment were critically analyzed as (potential) spheres of conviviality and integration.
