Between 2004 and 2013, nearly 2 million South Americans obtained a short lived residence permit in one of many nine international locations implementing the agreement, according to a 2014 report by the International Organization for Migration . Argentina, Chile, and Brazil have seen the largest increase in permits granted every year. However, this does not necessarily point out a rise in regional flows due to the agreement, considering numerous those who have obtained such permits already resided within the host country when it got here into drive.
On sure events, the South Americans have energetically criticized decisions of the League and so they can boast of having stood more faithfully than others by the spirit of the Covenant. For example, Argentina in 1920 demanded the democratization of the League, the equality of all nations, and the creation of latest seats on the Council. Quite recently Costa Rica, talking by way of a former President of that republic, denounced the formation of a Great Power oligarchy throughout the League, and the same country requested the League to outline the meaning and the scope of the Monroe Doctrine. During the Great War, the Spanish American continent, young, generous, romantic in its ambitions and in its beliefs, provided lavish coöperation to the peoples of Europe, above all to France — moral coöperation for a time, it is true, but before lengthy it was a question of blood. South America despatched to European battlefields a true élite of her sons, an élite made up especially of intellectuals, who fought within the ranks of the Allied armies and helped by heroic example to awaken their home governments to participation. Predatory empires have been seeking to crush the freedom of democratic peoples.
