What is the current reality in Central America and why are people leaving the region? In this first session of the series "Beyond the Border: The Realities of Migration from Central America," global affairs experts will provide context to this question by giving an overview of the current levels of migration, its various drivers, and the different ways people and organizations are responding.

This panel is the first in a three-part series "Beyond the Border: The Realities of Migration from Central America." Migration from Central America to the US continues to make headlines and drive policy discussions. This series uses research-based evidence to go beyond this narrative and discuss the issues behind the typical “root causes” of migration from the region. Join us for a unique conversation with researchers, practitioners, and policymakers from the US and Central America as we explore how we can promote safe paths to prosperity and dignity, both at home and abroad. Hosted in partnership by the Pulte Institute for Global Development’s Central America Research Alliance and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, this three-week program will allow you to participate in live discussions via Zoom on this timely topic, weekly on Wednesdays at 1:00 pm EDT beginning September 29.
