Migration from North America: An Overview from a Mexican Perspective with a focus on the PAMIR Project 

ISS21 Migration and Integration Research Cluster and University of Sanctuary UCC  

Tuesday 22nd February, 4pm- 5pm (via MS Teams - to join the seminar, please click on the Teams meeting link Here)

Presenter: Aranzazu González Hernández 

This presentation will provide a broad overview of returned migration trends from North America to Mexico with a special focus placed on the PAMIR Project. PAMIR was created through the International Relations Office, Universidad Veracruzana (UV), as an institutional response to the rise in returned migration trends and to address the needs of a growing diverse population of students from both Mexico and returned from the US. The Returned Migrant Care Program (PAMIR-UV) formally began its activities in January 2017.  It was established to provide support and care services to returned migrants and students from North America, who due to their immigration status, face specific obstacles, affecting possibilities for integrating and developing effectively in academia. PAMIR oversees several activities aimed to promote conditions for educational inclusion with migration perspective, as well as to develop activities to strengthen socioemotional capacities to consolidate school and life trajectories.
