A report issued by the Centro de Derechos Humanos Fray Matías de Córdova, a MacArthur grantee, and the Human Rights Center at Univeridad Nacional de Lanús in Buenos Aires explores human rights concerns associated with the growth of youth and child migration at Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala. The report analyzes the forces driving the expanding presence of young people on the border, like Mexican immigration policies regarding detention and repatriation. The report presents recommendations to help address the issues surrounding child migration using a human-rights-based approach and was presented to Mexican officials in November 2012. The full report is available in Spanish and an executive summary is available in English.
