The author focuses on the specific traits of European mass migration to South America (1850-1930). Since mass migration was directed only to three countries (Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay), he discusses just these cases. How did the timings of European migrant flows Southwards and Northwards compare? What were specific features of European migration to South America in terms of formal skills and national and regional origins? How differences existing between South American receiving states and societies and the other receiving areas (in terms of policies, social structures and economic developments) affected social integration and mobility of people? Finally, the paper discusses both perceptions of and prejudices against Europeans in the three societies and a question how they favored or hindered immigrant success.
