Together with competent private and public actors in the area of migration in Brazil, Mawon participates in debates on public migration policies.
The main objectives are to guarantee migrants and refugees access to social rights and public services, promote respect for diversity and interculturality, prevent violations of rights, encourage social participation and develop coordinated actions with civil society.
How it works?
The policy established in Article 120 of the New Migration Law (Law 13,445/2017) seeks a partnership between the federal government, states, municipalities, companies, international bodies and social movements to assist migrants and refugees in Brazil.
From the 2010s onwards, with the new migration flows from the Southern Hemisphere to Brazil, discussions and normative resolutions emerged to regularize entry into the country and promote socioeconomic integration.
Since the arrival of Haitians in Brazil in 2010, Mawon has actively participated in events and debates on reception, raising the banner of migrants and refugees and seeking their leadership, voice and protagonism.
These practices have become the norm in public migration policies in Brazil.We act to ensure the shift from language “about” to “with” migrants and refugees.
