MetadataShow full item record
This paper explores international immigration using the case study of Peruvian immigration to Chile. Taking into consideration the current context of neoliberal reforms and social policy, the study focuses on the role of NGOs, international institutions and the Chilean state in developing social policy initiatives and programs to address the Peruvian immigrant question. Through an analysis of the discourses and programs presented by the Chilean state and formal organizations, this study explores how Peruvian immigration is being positioned within a larger concept of Chilean national and ethnic identity.
