Summary

Abstract

Human mobilities have played a determining role in the creation of a so-called « lusophone » space – which is comprehended and questioned here as a national, supranational and “postcolonial” political project – most primarily in regards to the redefinition of power struggles, of political relationships and of identitary construction among constituent countries. Migrations have exerted a structural constraint on the history of each of these countries, and the migratory circulations that travel across them have led to collective representations, discourses about alterity, about sharing a common History, which have not being questionned in a systematic and comparative fashion. This panel is meant to discuss these migrating populations’ mobility procedures in lusophone countries, while seeking to construct through the different presentations a broaden mosaic of reflexions about when and how these populations have moved, the identitary strategies that they have mobilized, the local, translocal and transnational social networks that they have built, how they have defined the frontiers that they have crossed as well as the mobility routes, and how they have used and instrumentalized the « imagined » and politically constructed idea of a « lusophone community ».
