Displaced and Disconnected
Desplazados y Desconectados: South America
In the wake of the initial Displaced and Disconnected report, UNHCR extended the scope of its analysis to the largest population outflow in Latin America’s recent history, the Venezuelan displacement crisis. Particularly relevant for this analysis is the operational context of this crisis, characterized by Venezuelans on the move carrying expired or no valid travel documents and forms of ID during their journey. From the end of 2019 until the beginning of 2020, UNHCR mapped the legal and regulatory barriers that are hampering refugees and other forcibly displaced persons’ digital and financial inclusion in the five countries hosting the largest number of Venezuelans in the region, namely Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
