In today's interconnected world, migration has emerged as a pressing phenomenon that presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities to societies, economies, and host communities on a global scale. To effectively address the complex issues associated with human rights violations against migrants and refugees, access to legal resources is increasingly critical. One platform that aims to provide easy to access information and valuable analysis in this field is the Migration Judicial Log, developed by ABA ROLI's Colombia Project, Conectando Caminos por los Derechos (CCD). In this blog post, we will delve into the purpose, scope, and potential benefits of this innovative tool for users who are seeking to enhance their legal understanding of migration.
In November 2021, in partnership with Los Andes University's Center for Migration Studies, ABA ROLI launched the first phase of the Migration Judicial Log. The Log was designed as an innovative tool to identify relevant precedent cases produced to date in the context of migration. As the first of its kind in Colombia, the Log quickly became a key tool for advocacy and strategic litigation to defend the rights of migrants and refugees throughout the country. For more information about the phase one, read the blog titled, “Migration Judicial Log: Inputs for Advocacy and Strategic Litigation for the Migrant and Refugee Population in Colombia”.
