The territory of the current Argentine Republic has a long-standing migratory tradition, which has played – and still plays – a key role in the way its society, culture, and population are structured. Historically we can differentiate three periods: the early migrations, from the 18th century to 1880; the mass migrations, from 1881 to World War I; and the contemporary migrations, from the beginning of World War I onwards (Devoto 2003).
