The Policy Challenges of Central American Migration: The Human Rights Perspective

This is a past event.

Friday, April 30, 2021 at 11:30am

Virtual Event

Central American families and children keep flocking to the U.S.-Mexico border. The devastation produced by two recent hurricanes and the chronic structural problems in Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua keep pushing people out of their countries. The constant waves of immigrants, especially unaccompanied children, represent a challenge for practitioners, advocates and policymakers working to protect immigrants’ rights.  This panel will bring the human rights perspective to the discussion of immigration policy in the United States. 


Presented by the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs, in collaboration with the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center and co-sponsored by the Carlos A. Costa Immigration & Human Rights Clinic College of Law and the Václav Havel Program for Human Rights and Diplomacy's Global Migration & Immigration Initiative
