This article seeks to address the issue of international migration from a perspective that prevents us from analysing the phenomenon simply as an economic or demographic fact, and encourages us to enrich theory by incorporating the migrant’s point of view. What does migration mean and how is it experienced in the actor? These are questions that can only be considered by adopting the interpretative approach. The article, in turn, explores the role of symbolic interaction between cultures in this process and the possibility of accessing, through language, the nature of intercultural relations.
