Until now neither individual countries nor international organizations have managed to find an appropriate solution to problems related to the increasing number of immigrants and reception of these migrants in different countries. One of the philosophers who has grappled with this problem is Jacques Derrida. The author analyses in details Derrida's attitude towards hospitality and forgiveness from the point of view that Latvia should also be ready to face such problems in the near future when the quality of life here will approximate (or even exceed) the living standards in the most developed countries. The author concludes that only a hospitable, family-like environment for Latvian people and for immigrants, who already live in Latvia can serve as the basis for a long-term strategy for creating a hospitable environment for other immigrants.
