This paper aims to analyze the migratory phenomenon in the light of philosophy. Mobility is a fact as old as humanity, it responds to the need for progress, which has significantly helped in the evolution of man. However, war, disease, poverty, social marginalization, conditioned social scenarios and prompted human beings to transcend their geographical limits, seeking better life opportunities, thus guaranteeing the right to survival, advancing towards the consolidation of universal human rights. The present investigation assumes this theoretical-philosophical position; However, it recognizes the political, economic and social impact of migration in current scenarios; Therefore, it evaluates the specific case of the Venezuelan migration to Peru, pointing out the role that the Special Commission for Refugees has played in its performance as a state body whose function is to protect and enforce the right of refugees who enter the country Peruvian territory. For this reason, the importance of international agreements in the protection of refugees is recognized and, at the same time, the intrinsic value that exists in human nature is emphasized.
