Le risposte della Chiesa alle sfide lanciate dal fenomeno migratorio vengono elaborate sulla base delle situazioni particolari che si generano a partire dai diversi flussi.

La Sezione Migranti e Rifugiati ha chiesto ad alcuni esperti di elaborare dei profili migratori per ogni paese del mondo al fine di offrire uno strumento di consultazione scientifico e snello alle Chiese locali e agli altri attori cattolici impegnati nella pastorale della mobilità umana. Per ogni singolo stato vengono riportati dati e informazioni sulle migrazioni internazionali e interne, sul quadro giuridico nazionale e sui principali attori impegnati nel settore.

Trattandosi di un lavoro lungo e dispendioso, non tutti i dati sono al momento disponibili. Consigliamo di visitare frequentemente questa pagine per verificare gli eventuali aggiornamenti.
