El concepto de Pertenencia (Belonging) como marco analítico para la investigación sobre la juventud de origen inmigrante

Concepción Maiztegui, Esther Aretxabala, Aitor Ibarrola, Pedro J. Oiarzabal


This article describes and explores an analytical framework based on the concept of belonging, which, in turn, takes into consideration the personal, social, and performative dimensions of the integration process of young migrants. The concept of belonging is becoming one of the central pillars in current research on migration and integration, since it allows us to look into the subjective experiences of individuals and into the social environments that have an impact on the daily lives and give shape to the identity frameworks of young migrants. Approaches based on this concept also take into account the role of participation in social processes.
