Abstract: The discovery of neutrino oscillations opened a new window on physics beyond the Standard Model. In the last decade the measurement of a relatively large value of $\theta_{13}$ and the discovery of $\nu_{\mu} \rightarrow \nu_e$ appearance showed the possibility to search for CP violation in the leptonic sector with long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments.

Currently, T2K in Japan and NOvA in the U.S. are collecting data with unprecedented neutrino beam intensities with the goal of finding an evidence of CP violation and measuring the neutrino mass ordering. After a brief introduction to the experimental techniques used in long-baseline experiments, the latest results of the neutrino oscillations measurements will be shown. Finally, the future prospects of the current and next-generation experiments, with a particular emphasis on the phase II of the T2K experiment and its near-detector complex upgrade, will be presented.
