Hospitalidade e conflito: o problema do “reconhecimento” no acolhimento de refugiados

Translated title of the contribution: Hospitality and Conflict: The Problem of “Recognition” in Refugee Reception

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article explores the philosophical complexities of asylum and refugee reception, critiquing both continental and analytical traditions while proposing a phenomenological method to bridge theory and praxis. It highlights the analytical tradition’s focus on formal rights and obligations, and contrasts this with insights from the continental tradition and Hannah Arendt’s experiential perspective on asylum. The paper advocates for a comprehensive theory of hospitality, aiming to reconcile formal rights with the lived experiences of refugees, ultimately striving for a balanced understanding and better facilitation of mutual recognition and integration.
