From November 22 to 24, the authorities of the migration agencies of the countries of Ibero-America will meet in Lima to participate in the VIII Ibero-American Meeting of Migration Authorities (RIAM), where they will discuss cooperation through the exchange of information, the use of technology and the current migration phenomenon from the perspective of internal migration policies.
The meeting has been called “Internal migration policy and interoperability as a regional integration mechanism“, which this time is held in Lima because the National Superintendence of Migration of Peru has the Pro Tempore Presidency of the RIAM.
In this meeting will participate the authorities of the immigration authorities of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Panama, Portugal and Uruguay, among others, said El Comercio on Monday.
During this meeting, topics such as the application of technological interoperability in the region’s migration processes, actions and perspectives in internal migration policy within the framework of the current migration phenomenon, experiences and challenges on the subject, among others, will be discussed.
This meeting of the RIAM is carried out with the Venezuelan migratory phenomenon as its background, which, according to data from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), has generated the displacement of more than three million of Venezuelans.
