International Seminar on Inclusion and Integration of Migrants in Latin America

Migration in Latin America (MiLA) is a transdisciplinary research network aiming to strengthen the network of academics working on migration in Latin America and foster an international network of researchers in the field. Currently MiLA’s research is focused on exploring contexts of integration and inclusion of migrants in Argentina, Colombia and Mexico with a view to generate further studies on integration an inclusion in the region.

This event creates a space for open dialogue with key stakeholders from these countries. We will be hearing from academics and NGOs on their perspectives and experiences of practices and strategies that can promote integration and inclusion in the region and discuss further research proposals with them.

The event will take place on Wednesday 5th May 2021 (3:00pm -5:00pm (GMT)). It will be hosted by MiLA (the University of Edinburgh, UNAM and Queen Mary University of London) in collaboration with Instituto de Investigaciones Jurídicas and SUDIMER UNAM, via the Zoom online platform.
