With this paper we wish to analyse how the mass exits during the Belle Époque and the changes of the emigrants’ profile questioned the state’s role as a legal regulator and supervisor, in sight of the intermediaries’ activities and of the Portuguese economic and social life. We will focus several aspects, namely, questions related to emigration throughout this period; the problematic that the state intervention on emigration carries, and the reasons that led to a police and repressive official action.
