COSTA, Paulo Manuel  and  SOUSA, Lúcio. 40 Years of independence: Forced migration and asylum regimes in the PALOP (1975-2013). Cadernos de Estudos Africanos [online]. 2018, n.35, pp.89-108. ISSN 1645-3794.

This study aims to be an exploratory contribution about the refugee flows and the asylum regimes established in the Lusophone African Countries between 1975 and 2013. The goal is to assess the refugee flows in those countries, studying the historical context in which they occurred and its influence in the asylum regimes implemented in the context of the African policy towards refugees, namely the shift from an ‘open door' model, liberal, solidary and welcoming, to another more restrictive which is in place nowadays.

Keywords : refugees; forced migration; asylum; asylum system; PALOP.
