Who is Josefa?

A personalized proposal, in its own words:

All of us, migrants.

Our migrations are the foundation and keystone of our humanity: yesterday, today and tomorrow, we were, we are and we shall be, always, all of us, migrants.

Because the human being is by nature a migrant being.

Our migrations are to be understood according to a global approach: physical, psycho-intellectual and spiritual; not just looking at the spatiotemporal or climatic dimension, nor limiting them to a socioeconomic integration. Therefore, without a discriminating categorization: "the migrants".

Every human being is unique and, correlatively, every migration is unique.

Our migrations affect every human being and the whole human being.

To be migrant constitutes our Humanity.

Why our migrations?

Given the way migration is treated and narrowly viewed by the media and by political, social, and even economic interests, whereby a certain "undefined" group agrees to "help" those referred to as "migrants" (a term that is widely used, but ill-defined), is it still possible to ask "why", to ask what meaning our migrations have, all our migrations?

Dear friends,

We are pleased to announce the launch of Academia Josefa.

ACADEMIA-JOSEFA.ORG

The challenge is to sustainably include the Josefa vision in the political, economic, esthetic and ethical fields of our societies.

Thus, since 2011, in break with the traditional patterns on ‘’migrants", Josefa dares to engage, question and propose a renewed way to face the challenges of migration, according to its societal vision: "All Migrants", and according to its daily experience in and around the Josefa House in Brussels city center.

Therefore, in order to let the Josefa proposal resonate in a plural way, we have invited authors to join the adventure of the Blog Academia Josefa.

In freedom and according to their own questioning about the "migratory fact", these authors are telling us, in their own language, what means to them: "All migrants, and me? ".
