Seminar profile
SEMICOEX's work is carried out within the framework of a joint effort to observe, analyse and prospect for regular and irregular migration phenomena of our nationals to other countries. By monitoring trends in migratory flows, as well as systemic analyses of the migratory outlook in the countries of destination, the research group aims to study in depth the nature and development of Colombian migration abroad over the last 50 years, in response to the growing importance of migration as a shaping element in the political, economic and social processes of both the receiving countries and our country.

Working methodology
