Migrations, labor insertion, and social integration

Migratory flows that arrive in Spain show a phenomenon that is going
to mark of our future, regarding different spheres of our country’s life but
especially regarding their autonomic responsibility and the establishment of
the immigrants in every region, that is, the different forms (the nets) that are
adopted by the stable settlement of the diverse immigrant populations who
come to Spain. The new pluricultural situation will bring about considerable
social, cultural, and coexistence-related changes and adaptations. In this
paper we analyze how nets are formed and their implications, given that labor insertion – which appears to be a prerequisite for socio-cultural integration, is not enough to guarantee that relations between immigrants and locals tend towards an intercultural society. Therefore, it is necessary to go deeper in the knowledge on how migratory nets work, in order to ensure a stable settlement and to implement the necessary measures for those processes not to become a trauma for civil life. That is, it is necessary – through knowing how new populations become enrooted and how locals perceive them – to build integrating and democratic frameworks for coexistence between old and new settlers (Benattig, 1987).
