Abstract


This article analyses the Brazilian and Federal District legal provisions to understand how such documents reflect a type of perception on the phenomena of migration, irregular migration, and refuge. Starting from a post-structuralist reading, we scrutinize the documents in search of signs and traces of the migrant subject, observing the particularities, the silence, and the emptiness of his process of social invisibilization. In the research and elaboration of the article, we face different theoretical traditions, in a clear exercise of bricolage. Finally, we present in the final considerations some recommendations that we consider pertinent so that the phenomena of contemporary international migrations are better perceived by educational research and, consequently, by educational public policies.
