Migrant child protection in Latin America & the Caribbean


Alexandra Castro speaks with Pablo Ceriani about the changing migration patterns of children across Latin America, and how there has been a general increase in capacity and willingness to deal with migrant child protection in the region.

However, he also argues that xenophobia and public narratives that criminalize migrants are influencing new policies and laws and this increases vulnerability for all migrants, including children.

Pablo Ceriani is a lawyer and has a PhD in Human Rights. He is currently the Director of the Master of Migration and Human Rights in Latin America and the Caribbean at the National University of Lanús, in Argentina. He's also a member of the UN Committee on Migrant Workers.
