CLAVIJO, Janneth; PEREIRA, Andrés  and  BASUALDO, Lourdes. Humanitarianism and migratory control: Refuge, medical care, and labor migration. Apuntes [online]. 2019, vol.46, n.84, pp.127-157. ISSN 0252-1865.

This article reviews the relationship between humanitarianism and migratory control in international migration policies in Argentina. We analyze the processes of ambivalent categorization of migrant subjects as victims and/or threats, through three humanitarian categories that appear in the regulation of international migrations: refugees, migrants undergoing medical treatment, and labor migrants. The methodology employed is qualitative and analyzes: statements of international organizations; national regulatory frameworks related to migration, refuge, and the transplantation of organs and tissues; institutional discourses; laws; official reports; and public commentaries by government officials.

Keywords : Migration; victims; threats; Argentina; humanitarianism; control.
