Title: Irregular Migration: Impact on National Security and Defense Policy in South America (1990-2020)

The research project aims to deepen one of the problems discussed in the public sector worldwide, specifically in the National Security and Defense (SDN) sector: the treatment of irregular mass migration as an SDN issue. In this line, we propose the historical-evolutionary study of the transformation of the SDN policy in South America from the 1990s to 2020, with a focus on Venezuelan migration in recent years, taking as a basis the social, political and economic dynamics as a context to identify the factors that impact SDN policies.
