Latin American Network for Forced Migration (LANFM)


To help improve the quality of life of forced migrants and persons living as refugees in Latin America, a project on Forced Migration in Latin America was launched in Bogotá in 2010 to create regional networks for research and advocacy. Called the Latin American Network for Forced Migration (LANFM), this regional network focuses on facilitating multilateral dialogue spaces on forced migration in Latin America and creating spaces for ongoing communication between regional practitioners and researchers and global networks of forced migration studies.
