Virtual Library on Migration

 

Las agencias especializadas del Sistema de Naciones Unidas cuentan con información valiosa sobre sus diversos temas de expertise, los cuales a menudo concurren con la migración. Su información es particularmente relevante pues responde a metodologías de alta calidad y trabajan con muestras de poblaciones variadas y en ocasiones con un número considerable de personas. La Biblioteca Virtual reúne los repositorios de las agencias de la ONU para incentivar la búsqueda ampliada de investigaciones que transversalicen la migración con otros temas relacionados con el desarrollo sostenible.

Guide for psychosocial care for migrants in Mesoamerica

20 / 12 / 2019

The different stages of the migration process bring specific risk factors that can generate psychosocial vulnerabilities that, when combined with other elements of risk such as pre-existing psychological, emotional and social vulnerabilities, can affect the well-being of migrants, their families and the communities of origin, transit or destination.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), in its mission of ensuring respect for human dignity and the well-being of migrants, includes - as an integral part of the organization's work - psychosocial and mental health support. These two axes are a right of all migrants, since they represent indispensable conditions to guarantee their well-being and productivity, as well as integration into destination countries.

Memoria del I Congreso sobre Mujeres en Contextos Migratorios

Event Memory on the First Congress on Women in Migratory Contexts

18 / 09 / 2019

The Regional Conference on Migration (CRM), as a regional consultation process committed to the Human Rights of migrants, has promoted various initiatives throughout its 23 years of existence. “Migrant women” is a current theme with a very significant impact on regional migration dynamics, and requires strengthening from the regional and internal levels of the Member Countries of this conference.

The States that make up this conference have identified that the role of women in migratory dynamics is increasingly relevant and has taken different facets when migrating, since they not only undertake the journey alone, but also accompanied by their children and daughters; or, they are established at the destination and subsequently make every effort to achieve family reunification.
