Rights, ideas and solutions



The International Network on Migration and Development, the Center for Legal and Social Studies (CELS), the Argentinian Commission to support Refugees and Migrants (CAREF), the Centre for Human Rights of the University of Lanús (UNLA) and the Centre for Human Rights Fray Matías de Córdova gathered several civil society organisations to a meeting in Mexico City under the framework of MADE’s regional meetings in the Americas.

The meeting “Migration in the Americas: Strengthening regional links for advocacy” took place in Mexico City between 31 August and 2 September 2015. About 70 civil society organisations and individuals who work to defend the human rights of migrants across 17 countries in the region assisted this event to identify common characteristics, structural problems and possible solutions to the challenges that individuals, families and communities face across the Americas.

During the meeting, multiple strategies to advance in the protection of human rights of migrants across five key areas were identified:  root causes of migration, irregular migration, inclusion, children and gender. Six civil society delegates from several civil society organisations in the Americas were interviewed by MADE  and offered their view about these areas and sought to build common solutions.
