Two Centuries of European Immigration in South America
Diego Acosta, Bristol University

Between 1870 and 1930 South America was the second largest recipient of migrants in the world only after the USA. Millions of Europeans emigrated notably to Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. How have countries with 200 years of history regulated the legal figure of the national and the foreigner through their constitutional, nationality and migration law? What lessons can other regions in the world learn from such experience over two centuries?

Lecture organized by CEDLA, ACES migration network and Law & Justice across borders – University of Amsterdam.
