Latin America and Refugee Protection: Regimes, Logics, and Challenges.

Main Article Content

Andrea Pacheco Pacifico


The Latin American regime on forced displacement of persons is an example of Good Practices to be replicated in many ways and in different places and realities. Historical, political, and legal peculiarities of the region have shown how countries within the region have adjusted the International Refugee Regime to the local needs, on local implementation level, for instance on legal, institutional and political issues. Though gaps and failures still exist, the regional regime should be considered everywhere. Hence, this book comes at a necessary time, when the global regime is in crisis and it has failed to address current dilemmas with positive outcomes.
