Argentina’s Innovative Humanitarian Visa: Responding to Disaster Displacement
While disasters and climate change displace large numbers of people throughout the world, governments have often struggled to adopt appropriate policy responses. In May 2022, the government of Argentina introduced a new humanitarian visa for people displaced in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean by disasters, enabling them to remain in the country for up to three years. This online event will feature presentations by Argentine government officials on the development of this new program as well as reflections on the regional and global implications of this policy development.
