Hacia un enfoque de integración intercultural humanista como solución a la integración de Refugiados de Medio Oriente en Ecuador

  • CESAR CASTILLA Universidad de Los Hemisferios

Abstract

The situation of instability that the Middle East is living due to terrorism or conflicts generated by geopolitical interests has triggered a migratory crisis without precedents since 2014. Countries like Ecuador have been noted for their unrestricted respect for agreements subscribed regarding shelter for those who need international protection. As such, Ecuador has become an attractive country for people who want to start a new life given the flexibility of its immigration policy. Nevertheless, when it involves Middle East people, the process of integration is not that easy, especially if it has to do with a society where western values prevail. Therefore, it is necessary to create a proposal that may allow immigrants’ integration within Ecuadorian society by means of an education prioritizing a humanistic approach. For such end, the Integration Program for Refugees and Migrants, created by Universidad de Los Hemisferios, is being analyzed.
