Responses to the Challenges Faced by Women Migrants in the Northern Triangle

May 4, 2022 • 8:00 – 9:30 am EDT

Please join Ryan C. Berg of the CSIS Americas Program for a virtual conversation on the security, economic, and social factors that impact the migration of women from the Northern Triangle.
El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras face structural challenges which often force their citizens to migrate. These burdens fall heavily on women and girls who are more likely to be in poverty and face violence that is often met with impunity. 
This event will explore how poverty, unemployment, food insecurity, and the impact of natural disasters and climate change unevenly impact migration patterns. Furthermore, the panelists will sketch possible solutions to address these root causes of migration and their impact on women and girls. The panel will feature global development experts and voices from the field that work to further empowerment of women and girls in the Northern Triangle.

This event was made possible through generous support from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO).
