Migrations of the 19th century
In terms of migration data, there are several entities in charge of the collection, processing, dissemination and use of administrative records related to migration in the region. These institutions include general migration directorates, official bodies, statistical institutes, government ministries and tourism authorities that collect information on passengers and visitors. Some countries with robust registration systems capture biometric content in migration movement data (IOM, 2018).
The vast majority of Caribbean emigration is extra-regional – as of 2020, 90.5 percent (8.22 million) of emigrants from the region lived outside the region while only 9.5 percent (859,403) lived in another country or territory in the region (Ibid).
. In the CSME, all CARICOM nationals are entitled to free mobility within the community and have permission to stay for six months in any other member state under the permit known as “travel facilitation” (Ibid). Between 2013 and 2017, a total of 439,328 movements of CARICOM nationals were recorded under the “travel facilitation” framework (Ibid)3
For what purpose did Europeans migrate to the Americas?
Thus, as Terrón pointed out, migration has entered the field of international relations through the door of development. Currently, migrations have been incorporated into the global agenda through the SDGs, specifically through target 10.7: safe, orderly and regular migration; which later gave rise to the aforementioned Global Compact. Both target 10.7 and the Compact contain two interrelated elements: migration governance and action on development. Specifically, the Global Compact devotes two points to these issues. Point 2 states that the endemic structural factors that force migration must be minimized and, therefore, the so-called push factors must be combated. Point 19 speaks of migrants as development actors, determining factors for both their countries of origin and destination. By working on these two tracks – support for migrants as a development factor and strengthening governance – a more virtuous circle can be generated than is currently the case.
Immigration in latin america, nineteenth century
German immigration to the United States was massive and contributed enormously to the population of the country. Today, the United States has the largest community of German descent in America, which inhabits the entire national territory (mainland and islands), with an estimated census population of 50,271,790 descendants in 2008. German-Americans form the largest ethnic group in the country, ahead of Irish and English descendants. None of the German states had colonies in the New World.
None of the German states had colonies in the New World. It was not until the 1670s that the first major groups of German immigrants arrived in the British colonies, settling mainly in New York and Pennsylvania. While many Germans were migrating eastward in Europe, forming important ethnic German groups in various kingdoms (Germans from Hungary, Germans from Russia, etc.), many others were migrating to the United States. Thus, German immigration to the New World increased considerably, with eight million arriving during the 19th century (seven and a half million between 1820 and 1870 alone).
Which is the most immigrant-receiving country in the Americas?
European migration is the movement of people from Europe to other continents. It was a particularly intense phenomenon during the colonial era, during the European wars and dictatorships, due to the demographic increases of the population in the region and the economic crises, famines, political repression and other difficulties present in the continent at that time. The reversal of these factors in Western Europe has changed the sign of the migratory balance, being this area nowadays an important recipient of immigrants.
Many emigrated in search of adventure, work and, in general, economic advancement in order to achieve greater expectations for the future. Several of them settled permanently in the new lands, created new nations and transferred the culture and part of the European heritage.
Another great recipient of immigrants has been Brazil, where about five million Europeans arrived between 1860 and 1920,(one million until 1900) about 2-4 million settled permanently. The number of immigrants has been increasing in the last few years. The number of immigrants has been increasing in the last few years.
