MAGALHAES, Giovanna Modé  e  SCHILLING, Flávia. Immigrants from Bolivia at schools in São Paulo: borderlines for the right to education. Pro-Posições [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.1, pp.43-64. ISSN 1980-6248.

The purpose of this study is to understand how the human right to education for immigrants from Bolivia in the city of Sao Paulo is being fulfilled. The research takes place at the crossroad between two contemporary global debates: on one hand, the growth and complexity of the international migration process and, on the other, tensions concerning rights universalization in unequal and discriminatory societies. Throughout this study, we analyzed domestic and international laws and discussed the literature on international migration and its interface with the field of Human Rights, particularly questioning the relationship between rights for citizens and rights for all - as many people from the group are living illegally in Brazil, what does not interfere in the entitlement of their fundamental rights. To capture the details of the relationships and characteristics around this process, we visited places in the city where Bolivian immigrants gather, we conducted exploratory conversations with representatives from civil society organizations that fight for immigrants' rights, and, finally, we carried out 16 interviews with students, parents, teachers and employees from public schools in the city.
