Qualitative Info

According to the Law relating to the contract of association of July 1, 1901, association is the convention by which two or several people share, in a permanent way, their knowledge or their activity with a different aim than to share benefit. It doesn't contain any restrictions concerning migrants, but points out that any association founded on a cause or for an illicit, contrary object with the laws, the moralities, or the purpose of which would be to attack the integrity of the national territory and to the republican shape of the government, is null and of no effect.

Neither Law of June 30, 1881 on freedom of assembly, nor Law of March 28, 1907 on public meetings contain any restrictions concerning migrants.
