Abstract : This article analyzes the role of the rival Argentine Constitutional Clubs in the process of constitutional organization of the republic after the fall of Juan Manuel de Rosas, in 1852. The clubs, one directed by Juan Bautista Alberdi and the other by Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, were formed in a context of exile political mobilization, and now adapted to the conflict between Buenos Aires and the Argentine Confederation in the 1850s. In this conflict, the clubs played a central role in the constitutional debate, the diffusion of propaganda (in particular Alberdi’s Bases) and the diplomatic strategies of Buenos Aires and Paraná to gain the adhesion of the provinces and the diplomatic recognition of neighboring and European countries. This shows the transnational forces at the origin of national organization in addition to the historical background of exile as a political and social practice in Argentina.
