BRAZILIAN MIGRATION POLICIES AND THE PROTECTION OF MIGRANTS’ HUMAN RIGHTS: ADVANCES AND SETBACKS
This study aims to analyze the pendular movement between democracy and authoritarianism in Brazilian migration policies, from the immigration programs of the beginning of the 20th century to the adoption of the new Migration Law. The first section of the text assesses the gradual opening of Brazilian migration legislation to International Human Rights Law, notably after Law No. 13445/2017 came into effect, establishing a counterpoint with previous historical periods. The second section of the article addresses the setbacks observed nowadays, more than three years after the new legislation came into force, which prevent the realization of migrants’ human rights on Brazilian soil and impose a critical reading of the country's migration policies.
