This bilingual booklet traces the development of CELS’ work with migrants and refugees, highlighting the main achievements and pending challenges regarding migration policies. In addition, it explains the changes introduced by Argentina’s new migration law (passed in 2004 and the detailed regulations of which were issued in 2010), which is considered a model framework that recognizes the human right to migrate. It also underscores the central role that social and human rights organizations played in this process. By identifying good practices and lessons learned, this publication seeks to contribute material for dissemination in order to promote a paradigm shift in other countries’ migration policies.
This edition describes CELS’ diverse strategies and interventions on this issue: research-based assessments, alliances with other organizations, policy advocacy, strategic litigation and the creation of a legal clinic, among others.
The English version begins on page 58 of the PDF that can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
