Over the years, there has been an increase in migrants in the countries of the so-called Northern Triangle of Central America, which includes El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. These massive movements have humanitarian, legal and political implications that have made the issue an essential part of the agenda of governments, international organizations and civil society organizations.
Terre des Hommes and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), with the support of the Honduran Red Cross and the support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) carried out the Regional Workshop “Violence and Legal Protection from Migration in the Northern Triangle of Central America”, with the aim of sensitizing and generating an exchange of information and experiences among the invited institutional actors and presenting the project of the same name.
On October 20 and 21, the problem was addressed and the methodological proposal presented for the collection of information to be carried out during the following months. The the stakeholders interested in generating an inter-institutional response were identified.
Based on the discussions and experiences shared in this Workshop and the information collected, it is hoped to understand the phenomenon in greater detail and to present proposals that will help strengthen humanitarian assistance for migrants, especially for children, adolescents and women who return or live in conditions of high risk and social vulnerability.
