Regional Diagnosis of Migration in Colombia with a Human Rights Approach (2014-2018)

Project: Research Project

Project Details


The project aims to characterize the immigrant population in the Colombian territory in five regions of the country (Antioquia, Central, Caribbean Coast, Coffee Growing Axis, North East) from a Human Rights perspective, with the purpose of detecting the main problems faced by these people in the effective recognition of their rights to work, health, education, and access to justice, having as a central axis of analysis their migratory situation (regularity or irregularity). This diagnosis will be carried out with the participation of national and regional entities with competence in this area, social organizations and the civil population. It should be noted that this project is carried out without economic resources and the entire research team is advancing the proposal as it is considered vital for access to the rights of the migrant population in the selected areas of work.
