"Discriminatory practices against migrants"

The Memory Park Education team presents the following activities guide for the classroom to the teachers who are part of the Project Posters. This proposal is organized in the four thematic axes that guide the project:

1. The origins and characteristics of Argentine migration, seeks to investigate the motivations of migration in Argentina at the end of the 19th century, taking into account the national political thinking of that time. It also aims to reflect on the idea that migration was “exclusively European” incorporating information on the characteristics of border migration.

2. Immigration, work and living conditions, proposes thinking about work as the engine of migration, characteristics, conditions and problems of the work and migration relationship at present for the receiving country.

3. Migration and regulatory frameworks, aims to understand and compare the laws that regulate migration in Argentina, from a retrospective perspective and in relation to the socio-political contexts of its production, trying to problematize the conceptions of institutionally constructed migrants.

4. Representations of migration, presents different views of migration in artistic expressions, which allows identifying stereotypes about migrants. We suggest that you take into account at least one of the activities for each axis with the students to activate the debate and as a framework for the meetings and the subsequent production of the posters.

At the end of the document there is a chronology of migration from the end of the 20th century to the present day, which, by way of synthesis, relates migratory movements to the political, social, economic characteristics and regulatory regulatory frameworks of each context.
