The bittersweet efforts for a regional governance of migration in Latin America.

The concept of migration governance implies a wide range of agreements, debates and discussions on migration, which aim at finding common answers to this phenomenon. Conscious of this, the countries of the Latin-America region did multiples efforts to set common guidelines for the management of migration and for the protection of the rights of migrants and refugees. Nevertheless, the process results are bittersweet if we contrast the range of commitments, agreements, declarations with their level of implementation. States usually disrespect their commitments due to political interests, questioning the tenor of the commitments assumed and the effectiveness of regional organizations of which they are part.
The present paper tries to go over the development of regional migration governance with the aim of highlighting the challenges that exist in the process of conformation of commitments on migration capable of overcome political swings and be respectful with migrants’ human rights.
