The master Graciela Zamudio, director of Alma Migrante, will have the honor of participating in the analysis table entitled “The northern border in the face of the Central American and Caribbean migration crisis”, scheduled for May 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. as part of the activities of the International Congress “Migration crisis in Europe and America in the light of International Human Rights Law”.
The last decade in Europe and America has been characterized by large migratory flows, which has led to talk of a global migration crisis. The countries or regions where they occur have faced multiple challenges in caring for people who forcibly leave their country and move to another(s).
The recent and unfortunate events in Ukraine confirm the relevance of reflecting on global and regional challenges for the protection of people in accordance with international human rights standards in current times.
Under this framework, said congress will be developed as an initiative in which multiple institutions converge, among them, the Jean Monnet Chair on Migration, Asylum and Refuge of the European Union in conjunction with the University of Granada; the Department of Law of the Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City Campus; the Institute of Legal Research of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
The International Congress “Migration Crisis in Europe and America in the light of International Human Rights Law”, will be held on May 4, 5 and 6 next, in Mexico City and Tijuana.
