Resumen

Venezuelan migration is the largest exodus in the contemporary history of Latin America, characterized by complex issues, including precarious living conditions in Venezuela. Ecuador is a main destination country for Venezuelan migration. Leading up to and during and beyond the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, Ecuador faces a socioeconomic crisis, limiting its capacity to address the needs of the migrant population. This article presents a review of the literature and examines actions and campaigns of the Ecuadorian state and international organizations during the pandemic, with a focus on the migrant population. We argue that the retreat of the State in terms of social protection, alongside the expansion of interventions by international organizations, result in increased dependence on humanitarian assistance-led models of governance of migration, exacerbating the precarity and inequality faced by migrants in Ecuador.
