CERNADAS, Pablo Ceriani; GARCIA, Lila  and  SALAS, Ana Gómez. Childhood and adolescence in the context of migration: principles, advancements, and challenges for protecting their rights in Latin America and the Caribbean. REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.42, pp.9-28. ISSN 1980-8585.

The present article strives to give a panorama of the situation of youth in Latin America and the Caribbean, especially regarding the current advancements and challenges facing the region's countries on the issue of the human rights of children and adolescents (NNA) in the context of immigration. With such an end, the article forms a general description based upon certain broad principles derived from the Convention of the Rights of the Child, upon which can be constructed some concrete standards applicable to NNA migrants and their children. We present two timely cases which succinctly and precisely cover the variety of contexts, opportunities, and challenges within the region: Argentina and Mexico.

Keywords : migration; human rights; children; Latin America.
