A politização das migrações internacionais : direitos humanos e soberania nacional


  • Fausto Brito



The aim of this paper is to analyze the reaction of developed countries to international migration through restrictive legislation. It is considered that the cause of this reaction is not only cyclical, derived from the contemporary crisis of capitalism, but also that it lies in the structural formation of the host countries. The foundation of policy analysis undertaken throughout is developed to understand the paradox established between the sovereignty of each country and the universalization of human rights, especially of immigrants.
