The AIM Overseas Immigrants, Human Rights & Society program offered by the University of La Salle is designed to give students a strong understanding of the complex issues around migration and immigration using the example of Mexico as a case study. 

Over the course of 3 weeks students will study Mexico’s unique position as a key geographic pathway, where migration movements are from the southern border into Mexico, from the northern border into the US and also within Mexico.
