Which is the best variant between the two?

  1. A downside of population migration is considered to be the forfeit of unique cultural aspects in the agglutination process.

  2. A downside of population migration is considered to be the forfeit of unique cultural aspects during the agglutination process.

I have read the explanations in the Cambridge Dictionary and, as I understood, both variants are correct, but I favour the variant with “in” while my colleagues voted for the variant with “during”.

Sorry, your colleagues are right. During is used, when we are talking about an event, activity or experience (not simply a period of time). In is used in Prepositional phrases, when we are talking about a period of time.
