On April 2, the Inter-American Dialogue in partnership with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) hosted an event titled “Venezuela’s Migration Crisis.” This discussion, which was moderated by Michael Camilleri, featured panelists Shannon O’Neil from CFR, Francisca Vigaud-Walsh from Refugees International, and Dany Bahar from the Brookings Institution. This conversation explored the current status of the migration crisis, the US and international community’s response, and the challenges going forward.
Millions of people are fleeing the Northern Triangle, Venezuela & Nicaragua. Are neighboring countries able and willing to accept them?
What else can Central America and the United States do to curb migration north?
How well is the Trump administration handling its relations with Latin American nations?
Great Decisions examines in the documentary “Northern Triangle: The Origins of America’s Migrant Crisis” the Western Hemisphere’s migration crisis and the fractured societies at the heart of it: Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue, is one of the featured guests in this documentary.
