dc.description.abstractSouth America’s remarkable migration regime has long been regarded as the paragon of welcoming policies deeply entrenched in human rights. Most political decisions taken in this field may seemingly suggest that the region operates coherently. The sustained efforts of regional organisations, mainly CSM and MERCOSUR, towards achieving an integral regional policy in regard to migrants dates back almost twenty years. But recently appeared contestations in Argentina, Brazil and Chile put at stake those welcoming principles well established as a norm for South America. The shift from a non-securitised approach to a rather restrictive migratory agenda calls for a deep examination of the contestations. This implies determining if they are either validity, affecting the very core of the norm, or applicatory contestations, where the norm’s practical aspects are reshaped. Through Deitelhoff and Zimmerman’s (2019) norm research theoretical framework, the three abovementioned countries will be analysed in this thesis to prove how their recent national measures have actually exerted an impact on the robustness of the entire region’s welcoming norms.en_US
