Description: 

The study on “Migratory routes and dynamics among Latin America and Caribbean countries (LAC) and between LAC and the European Union” presents key, up-to date information and data essential to furthering and enriching the dialogue among governments of the two regions – and between the regions themselves and the EU. The information presented in this study also seeks to serve as a primary reference to facilitate comprehension of the migratory dynamics between the two regions. Through the systematic analysis of key databases and a literature review, the study identifies the major flows between regions and some of their characteristics. 

The study is part of the project “Strengthening the dialogue and cooperation between the European Union (EU) and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to establish management models on migration and development policies”, implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in partnership with the International and Ibero American Foundation for Administration and Public Policy (FIIAPP) and financed by the European union.
