Regional Responses to the Crises in Latin America and the Caribbean: Recommendations for COVID-19

Invitation Only

The Stanley Center for Peace and Security and La Coordinadora Regional de Investigaciones Económicas y Sociales (CRIES), co-organizers of the Latin American and Caribbean Forum of Civil Society for the Prevention of Mass Atrocities, convene the Sixth Workshop of Regional Responses to the Crises in Latin America and the Caribbean, May 28-29, 2020.

Through this initiative, academics and representatives of civil society organizations are brought together to develop analysis and recommendations that promote broader awareness in society and inform political bodies and policy makers within the region. The series of virtual activities for the forum includes a collection of small group thematic workshops resulting in topic-specific policy briefs relating to Venezuelan human displacement, prospects for political transition in Venezuela, the crisis in Brazil, regional geopolitics, and human displacement in the Caribbean, all viewed through the lens of the current global COVID-19 pandemic. This regional workshop further refines those briefs and aims to develop and exchange final recommendations.
