The Regional Conference on Migration (RCM), as a regional consultation process committed to the human rights of migrants, has promoted various initiatives throughout its 23 years of existence. "Migrant women" is a current issue with a very significant impact on regional migration dynamics and requires strengthening from the regional level and at the domestic level of the Member Countries of this conference. The States that make up this conference have identified that the role of women in migration dynamics is increasingly relevant and has taken on different facets when it comes to migration, since they not only undertake the journey alone, but also accompanied by their sons and daughters; either they settle down at the duty station and then make every effort to achieve family reunification.
