Regional Responses to the Crisis in Venezuela

April 24, 2019 - April 26, 2019

Cúcuta, Colombia

The Stanley Foundation and La Coordinadora Regional de Investigaciones Económicas y Sociales (CRIES), co-organizers of the Latin American and Carribean Network of Civil Society for the Prevention of Mass Atrocities, are hosting a fourth workshop on "Regional Responses to the Crisis in Venezuela" in association with Instituto Pensar and Servicio Jesuita de Refugiados Colombia. The workshop will take place April 24–26, 2019, in Cúcuta, Colombia.

This fourth workshop seeks to expand the participation of experts and will cover issues such as the characteristics of the Venezuelan humanitarian emergency, the migration and displacement of Venezuelan refugees to non-bordering countries, the opportunities and challenges of coordination between civil society and multilateral organizations, and the role of extra-regional powers in the Venezuelan crisis.

The crisis in Venezuela has resulted in serious repercussions beyond its own borders and while it seeks to take steps to deal with the escalation of violence, the violation of human rights, and the acute shortage of food and essential goods, it has been granted little attention to the actions directed to protect the Venezuelans who escape from their own country. Thus, it is a priority to design and implement policies at the regional and national levels in the countries that receive these migratory waves, with the aim of ensuring the well-being of these populations and protecting their human rights as an essential part of strengthening resilience in the region.
