The project located, collected and assessed a variety of archival and documentary repositories containing material relevant to migration and development policies in Greece, Portugal, Argentina and Brazil from the end of WWII until 1960. The research team examined documents and materials produced by the government agencies of the above-mentioned countries as well as PICMME-ICEM, including statistical data, agreements between member-states, internal and external correspondence, reports and proceedings, newsletters, journals and publications, the minutes of meetings and visual objects such as photographs or film footage. It traced the government and international policies drawing on news releases, memos and journal publications for instance.
