Summary/Abstract: A great number of migration waves causes disturbance to the traditional idea of space, frontier and the Other. Thus, if scientific discourse takes the identity of migrants into account, it is forced to reconstruct the traditional concepts of traditional and collective (cultural and national) identities, that is, to adjust them to the contemporary state of the world marked with migration. Therefore, this paper deals with the identity of migrants and phenomena closely related to this, such as interculturality and hybridity, whereby the focus is on question – What kind of potential lies in the identity formed/owned by migrants?
