Migration crises and the venezuelan reception processes in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru


The political, economic and social crisis in Venezuela has resulted in a mass migration that has hit some Latin American countries. Countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru have experienced, for the first time in their history, the situation of having to deal with the mass arrival of migrants. By the end 2018, more than 3,314,000 Venezuelans had left the country most of them headed for Colombia, Peru and Ecuador. Brazil has received over 180,000 migrants. This migratory movement resulted in responses from the governments of these countries that included different reception processes, which generally involved national and international institutions. Thus, the activities had to be coordinated in an interagency process and, in some way, from the perspective of crisis management. During these processes the perceptions of migrants (in relation to processes) and local (in relation to migrants) became relevant and probably impacted the following actions in both the decision of migrants regarding their destination and measures for their incorporation into local/national society by the authorities. In this sense, the research intends to analyze the processes of reception of Venezuelan migrants/refugees in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, comparing the processes in the four cases. (AU)
