New from OAS: Online Database of Legal Information on Migration in the Americas
The Executive Secretariat for Integral Development of the Organization of American States (OAS) today officially launched the Database of Migration Legislation in the Americas (MILEX), as part of an effort to promote a better understanding of migration phenomena with a comprehensive, objective, and long-term approach to the origins, manifestations, and effects of migration in the region.
MILEX, part of the Inter-American Migration Information System, seeks to aid the work of the various governmental and civil society actors involved in the process of reviewing, updating, and developing public policies and legislation on migration. The presentation of the database was conducted in the framework of a meeting of the OAS Special Committee on Migration Issues in Washington, DC.
The database provides immediate and updated access to official documents, including international laws, codes, specific human rights legislation, asylum and refugee legislation, entry processes, permanent and semi-permanent residency, and the regulation of communities abroad.
