Crisis in Venezuela: Building Resilience through Civil Society Engagement
The impacts of the unfolding crisis in Venezuela are both local and regional. Domestic action is necessary to reduce the escalation of violence, human rights violations, and the shortage of food and health commodities. At the same time, it is crucial to seek solutions to protect rights of Venezuelans who are leaving the country to escape the economic crisis, uncontrolled violence, and political persecution.
The Stanley Center is co-hosting a workshop with The Regional Coordinator for Economic and Social Research (CRIES), focused on preventing further violence. The workshop will bring together international and regional policy-makers, the academic community, human rights defenders, peacebuilders, and development experts from the region to design, prepare, and disseminate recommendations for structural policies and operational measures that would contribute to strengthening resilience to conflict, crimes against humanity, and increased migration in the region.
