La paradoja de financiar una crisis de refugiados… sin refugiados

July 13, 2020

A la hora de solicitar apoyo financiero, los países latinoamericanos entienden al éxodo venezolano como una crisis de refugiados. Sin embargo, solo 2% de los 5 millones de desplazados gozan de dicha condición.

La realidad sociopolítica y económica en Venezuela ha ocasionado, sin dudas, un desplazamiento de personas sin precedentes en la región. Desde 2015, 5.2 millones de venezolanos se han radicado en el exterior, mayormente en Sudamérica, lo que ha presentado desafíos adicionales para países de acogida que ya contaban con problemas estructurales propios.
