A Liberal Tide: Towards A Paradigm Shift in Latin American Migration and Asylum Policy-Making?


This international conference set out to chart new trends in migration, asylum and policymaking in Latin America. The key question behind the conference was whether the migration and asylum policies developed in Latin America over the past decade offer a new model distinct from the increasingly restrictive and securitized policies of European and North American States. The key questions the conference sought to tackle were the following: Is Latin America moving towards a liberal exceptionalism in the field of migration and asylum policy-making? And if so, what explains this liberal paradigm shift? Regional and country specific perspectives where presented through four panels, which brought together leading specialists from Latin America, the US and Europe to showcase and debate these novel developments.
