Migration from Venezuela: opportunities for Latin America and the Caribbean

The current Venezuelan migration crisis is the worst ever seen in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Since 2015, more than 5.4 million Venezuelans have had to leave their country as a result of the economic, social and political crisis facing Venezuela. This figure, which does not include hundreds of thousands of returnees, makes it the second largest migration crisis in the modern world, after the Syrian crisis.
