Regional Responses to the Crises in Latin America and the Caribbean: Shrinking Civic Spaces and Challenges to Resilience
Regional civil society has encountered increasing obstacles as the pandemic limits the action of civil society organizations in the operational arena, and in many cases, the governments of the region have implemented measures in response to COVID-19 that negatively impact civic spaces. The Stanley Center for Peace and Security and La Coordinadora Regional de Investigaciones Económicas y Sociales (CRIES), organizers of the Latin American and Caribbean Civil Society Network for the Prevention of Mass Atrocities, have engaged ten specialists from the region to produce a series of thematic documents analyzing national and regional contexts and providing recommendations oriented toward civil society organizations, representatives of multilateral organizations, and political decision-makers in national governments.
These inputs inform the discussion at the Regional Responses Workshop to the Crises in Latin America and the Caribbean: Shrinking Civic Spaces and Challenges to Resilience, December 8-9, 2020. Participants in the Cúcuta Forum activities join this series of virtual sessions moderated by the organizers and leading authors of the policy briefs.
