Feminization of Venezuelan Migration in Colombia: Regional Analysis with a Human Rights Approach 2014-2018

Project: Research project

Description

In the Colombian State the migratory scenarios have been changing in recent years; we went from being a country of origin of immigrants towards the foreigner, to being a country of destination for some of the neighboring States such as Venezuela. This has intensified as a result of the political crisis that the world is going through and justifies the need to produce research in this area, not only in a generic manner, but also with reference to population groups that are especially vulnerable, as in the case of women who migrate due to the confluence of causes such as political persecution and the adverse effect this has on the enjoyment of human rights, among others.

The presence of women within the migratory flows and the impact that this situation has, is not a novelty. It poses very specific challenges with respect to the treatment of their special situation with a human rights and gender approach. In the present project, the differentiated population study will focus on the reality of migrant women from Venezuela.
To this end, this project seeks to analyze the phenomenon of the feminization of migration processes between Venezuela and Colombia in the period 2014-2018, through the preparation of four regional diagnoses that allow the identification of the human rights situation of this population and its protection mechanisms.
In order to carry out the project, the possibility of collaborating with the Socio-Legal Network through the four nodes selected for the study is proposed. The participation of the Universidad del Rosario as Executive Secretariat of this Network facilitates the execution of the project and regional contacts.
