Lives in Limbo: The Need for Multilateral Response to the Venezuelan Crisis in Latin America
According to the United Nations, there are nearly 6 million Venezuelan migrants and refugees worldwide who have fled over the past few years due to a complex humanitarian, political, and economic crisis in the country, making it the second-largest mass migration crisis in the world, second only to Syria. The majority of these Venezuelans have fled by foot, bus, or other transport within Latin America, most notably to nations like Colombia, Brazil, Chile, among others. From the expansion of the refugee definition to include Venezuelans, to national temporary statuses, to more extreme policies of expulsion and deportation, the regional response in Latin America to Venezuelan migrants has posed a set of challenges for migrants as well as the nations receiving them. This panel will discuss the varying responses of nations to the Venezuelan migration crisis and the need for multilateral response in the face of crisis and how national migration policy towards Venezuelans reflects international responsibility in protecting the rights of Venezuelans abroad.
