COELLO CERINO, Luz Maricela. Scales of Governance: The Case of the Haitian Migration Flow in the American Continent.Translated byFátima Valdez. Migr. Inter [online]. 2019, vol.10, e2155.  Epub Jan 01, 2019. ISSN 2594-0279.

Analyzing the increasing migration flows of Haitians to the America continent in the last decade, this paper reveals the consequences of the scales of governance, demonstrating the difficulty in developing a coherent governance beyond borders. Explaining the migratory control strategies, as proposed by Mariana Valverde's theory of jurisdiction and scale governance, the paper concludes that migrant crisis is caused by differentiated governance, affecting not only the Haitians but also the receiving communities.

Keywords : international migration; jurisdiction; governance; Haitians; American continent.
