Amin Malouf (1998) The earth was once the center of the world by an error of perception and immatur ity cientÍfica.Depois the sun took its place in cosmology and human institution s have endeavored to adopt a different perspective. The truth is that whenever w e limit ourselves to just accept what is given us to know and do not allow room for doubts and differences, our nature becomes poor, stagnant, and more dangerou s than that, it stigmatizes and rejects what is beyond your understanding. Ident ity is a major issue, not only from anthropology, a science historically recent, but also by other social sciences such as philosophy or history. Since the day that the individual knows how to be self-communicating, which people find that m eeting people and resulting constructions and delimitation of territorial power, political, economic and cultural. The assertion that space is made in oppositio n to the Other and so begins the relationship between groups, whether national, regional, ethnic, cultural, linguistic or religious. And also get another lockup with definitions or attributes. But more than words or concepts, perhaps the re al lockup happen with silence, or rather the lack of recognition. We speak of th e complex human need, whether collective or individual, acceptance as a factor i n constructing identity. Charles Taylor (1994), in his essay "The Politics of Re cognition" defends Prepared on 10-08-2008 by adult / applicant - cont @ ct page: 10/12 that the failure or refusal of recognition and / or recognition can be considere d deformed forms of oppression and expression of inequality. Hence his advocacy of dialogic nature of the entity in which we are dependent on interaction with o thers. It also tells us that identity is always set for us "in dialogue and some times against, the things our significant others, want to see undertaken in us" (p. 53). This inevitability of the human condition as a dialogical then argues t he necessity of a politics of recognition combined with a policy difference. Thi s is because the universalism of the right to equality and dignity should not nu llify the uniqueness, authenticity and originality of each individual. To unders tand these two policies, the author explores the history of concepts such as aut henticity and dignity, according to the theories of Rousseau, Herder or Stuart M ill. It is in pre-democratic societies that the concept dignity is established a s a guarantee universalism and egalitarianism. That is, the dignity is now seen as a value common to all individuals, unlike the concept of honor that previousl y legitimized an entire system of social hierarchies, inequalities soon. Because recognition is linked to identity, Taylor gives us the change advocated by Rous seau and Herder, in the conceptualisation of identity construction. The notion o f authenticity encompasses not only the original character of the identity of ea ch, as well as the appreciation of the moral necessity of being true to their id entity. This is the novelty of an introspective attitude and internalized values and ways of life. The authenticity is inside each of us, as it is in the middle

of each culture. And this authenticity, part of the identity, builds and manife sts itself inevitably in dialogue with others.

The differences show up in colors, languages, cus toms and habits. For the host society and lay the constant challenge of respect for difference. For immigrant communities, full integration requires an active a nd participatory. Examples of such are very dynamic. Social space is now compose d of a network necessarily more complex but richer. Integrating involves taking diversity as an opportunity to create wealth. In this continuous process, where there remain pockets of difficulty, the media play an important role, in order t o capture, analyze and transmit information to the outside, helping to create an image of immigrants, more or less positive, with the host society. Their contri bution, their action, that is why even very important. There are many positive e xamples that reflect best practices and initiatives that promote integration.
