Resumen

THAYER, Luis Eduardo. Migration, State and security: Unresolved tensions and persisting paradoxes. Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.44, pp.109-129. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682016000200006.

Standing on descriptive information and bibliographyc review the article analizes the conditions in which contemporary migratory flows are produced, and the consequences faced by migrants in the context of the strengthening of border control policies. Political paradoxes and tensions arising from these control policies, are presented as the mainstream of migrant’s host developed countries. From there, a comparative analysis of border policies of the host states of migrants during the first half of the twentieth century is performed. The article concludes with the thesis that the contemporary reaction of the State against migration is a response to the demand of national societies. State response in turn contributes to reproduce and feed social unrest and contempt for migrants, which would result in a crisis of human rights as the foundation that western democracies have sought to give since the second half of the twentieth century.

Palabras clave : migrants; democracy; human rights; repression.
