The perspective of the migrants themselves was the framework for the other conference, the IAMR that took place in Mexico City just before the government-backed conference.
The IAMR was organized to challenge the view that migration will lead to development for the countries of the global South.
"There is no consideration for the root causes of migration or the difficult and often abusive conditions facing migrants," said Julia Camagong, coordinator of the international secretariat of the IAMR.
Camilo Pe'rez Bustillo, professor of law and one of the speakers at the IAMR, said the massacre of the 72 migrant workers was not an isolated case.
