Latin America & the Caribbean Migration Portal
You are here
This Portal is the first comprehensive website that tracks developments on immigration policy in Latin America and the Caribbean, presenting authoritative research, data, and analysis produced by MPI, governments, international organizations, researchers, and civil society. Humanitarian, economic, environmental, and geopolitical crises have led to mass movements of vulnerable populations, primarily from Venezuela and Central America. These unprecedented flows have tested the capacity of governments in the region and have propelled policymakers to rethink their approaches to migration management, mobility, and immigrant integration. At the same time, many countries are seeing their diasporas return in large numbers, often with foreign-born relatives, and some are trying to attract international talent and skills to meet specific needs.
It is in this extraordinary context that MPI has created the Portal, which features:
- Key immigration statistics from various governments and international organizations
- Primary source documents, including laws, decrees, and legislative discussions on immigration policy responses
- A selection of evidence-based reports by scholars, civil-society organizations, governments, international organizations, and other researchers who are on the front lines studying and addressing these migratory phenomena
- Original research and analysis written by MPI experts and leading external contributors.
This content is categorized by country and/or by topic, and is updated regularly. The portal is also available in Spanish.
