The paper examines the relation between citizenship and regional migrations in recent legislative changes in Argentina from a comparative perspective. The article discusses how these legislative changes are shaping a new migration paradigm and conceptions of citizenship; providing with relevant information about migration and citizenship in the Common Market of the Southern Cone (MERCOSUR). The article first gives a general review of the literature on citizenship and migration, with a focus on Latin America. In this framework, the contribution explores the factors which have driven recent legislative changes on migration and citizenship in Argentina and their implications in the light of the Supreme Court's case law on migrant’s rights and access to citizenship. The article further underlines the impact of MERCOSUR regulations on migration and citizenship issues at internal level.
