In 2016, over 216,000 migrants returned to the Northern Triangle of Central America (NTCA) from Mexico and the United States. Sixteen percent of these returning migrants were children. The large influx of returnees presents both a challenge and an opportunity for NTCA governments to develop systems to facilitate the migrants' return and reintegrate them into society. 

The Wilson Center's Latin America Program is hosting an in-depth discussion with a panel of experts from the International Organization for Migration on trends and challenges in addressing return migration, especially of unaccompanied migrant children in the Northern Triangle.
