MIEUX+ has been actively engaged in the region since 2009, with project themes centering around international protection and asylum, protecting vulnerable populations, and investigating environmental migration.
In the South American Gran Chaco, MIEUX+ collaborates with a diverse network of partners from local and national authorities, academia, and civil society organisations, to analyse human mobility and draft policy recommendations related to environmental migration, with a focus on indigenous communities.
MIEUX+ is drafting recommendations on mainstreaming the interculturality in the Strategic Plan of the Migration Management Policy in partnership with Medellin's Mayor Office, for the Colombia II Action.
As part of the Action Costa Rica IV, MIEUX+ is working alongside the Directorate General of Migration and Immigration to craft a protocol for aiding and safeguarding migrants in mixed migratory flows during emergencies or crisis situations.
Finally, MIEUX+ is cooperating with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to create a course centered on EU migration policy and asylum, in the context of theEl Salvador II Action.
