SOUSA, Dandara Peraro de  and  SILVA, Rafael Bianchi. The foreigners question in contemporaneity: A reading from Zygmunt Bauman. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.2, pp. 24-45. ISSN 2238-152X.

We live in a global moment when people are being forced to leave their countries, mainly because they consider that they do not offer living conditions and protection, going to other places in search of refuge. From these international movements it is possible to observe the need to construct ways of coexistence. The present work intends to analyze the problematic of the current context of international migrations and the issue of the foreigner from the ideas of polish sociologist Zygmunt Bauman. For this analysis the issue of the foreigner supported by the concept of identity. Considering the otherness that is present in the relationship with the other, finally we understand the importance of the recognition of the other in its singularity. At the same time, we understand the need to develop a new policy linked to construction of physical and symbolic spaces that make possible the experience of difference.

Keywords : Foreigner; Immigrant; Identity; Alterity; Zygmunt Bauman.
