The humanitarian and human rights situation for Haitian migrants has not improved in the Americas. Instead, invisibility continues to affect Haitian nationals, as states, civil society, and society at large have failed to find solutions to address the difficulties Haitian migrants face in the Americas.

For this reason, the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), the Consultancy for Human Rights and Displacement (Consultoría para los Derechos Humanos y el Desplazamiento,CODHES), and the PENSAR Institute of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Colombia invite you to participate in the Second International Forum for Haitian Migration in the Americas. Academics, members of civil society, and other leaders will discuss ideas and will seek to propose and build solutions so that the Haitian migration is a priority in the United Nations Declaration for Refugees and Migrants.

The International Forum on Haitian Migration in the Americas aims to be an academic and political event of continental and multilateral character, seeking to bring together the main actors involved or interested in the issue of Haitian migration. This year’s forum will take place in Miami, Florida.
