CAMINAR began in March 2020 following concerns about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on mobile populations in the Americas. Our objective is to provide an interdisciplinary analysis of the impacts that the health and economic crisis associated with COVID-19 has had on the dynamics of mobility in the region and on the well-being of the migrant, displaced and refugee populations. Our methodology is based on a comparative approach that combines quantitative and qualitative methods in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay.
