Summary/Abstract: 1. Talking about differences with respect to the migration issue could be, for the same reasons, taken for granted or confusing, since we are used to considering the migratory phenomenon as one of those events that relate various human groups, thus promoting not only the encounter between cultures, but also their hybridization and resulting in the flowering of differences. It is also known to most that migrations are often a product of huge economic differences that occur in various sectors of our planet and that cause the displacement of human masses. However, it is not only the intranational differences that produce the displacement of these masses, but also the international ones within what Wallerstein called the economy of the world-system1. Finally, migrations also produce and multiply the internal differences within the host countries: they can both affect the fragmentation of the social-cultural fabric, which is divided into enclaves and cultural groups that are not very communicating, and, once again, the increase in economic differences.
