Outmigration and Political Development in the Northern Triangle
September 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$5
The current surge in Central American asylum-seeking migration to the United States has roots in decades of civil conflict and economic underdevelopment in much of the region. This presentation looks at the situation in the Northern Triangle’s sending countries of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. The enduring problems of governance contribute to social despair and the willingness to accept the considerable risks of migrating north with hopes of obtaining asylum in the United States.
