Migration Policies and Management: Regional Analysis towards Sustainable Development
Keywords:Migration management, migration policies, governance, Sustainable Development
The special issue of the journal "Politics, Globality, and Citizenship" on management, governance, international migration, and local development is relevant because the chapters address different perspectives on the current situation, policies, and impacts of the largest irregular social and labor mobility in immigration history towards the United States. Additionally, it examines the context and some local and national regional development policies in Peru and Colombia.
The migration policy implemented by the administration of former President Donald Trump (2017-2020) towards Mexico was characterized by restrictive and controversial measures, such as family separation, the construction of the border wall, and the implementation of the "Remain in Mexico" program. These policies had a significant impact on migration dynamics and the political relationship between the two countries. With the start of President Joseph R. Biden's term (2021), some changes have been promoted in the immigration policy, recognizing the importance of effective and fair migration governance. The socio-economic context of the post-pandemic era has led to one of the largest human mobilities in the last ten years.
The importance of migration governance is reflected in the challenge of promoting humanitarian values, protecting the rights of migrants, and seeking comprehensive and collaborative solutions. These initiatives have been difficult to implement in US immigration policy due to certain restrictive policies still in place
