An event that brings together key Latin American representatives to analyze the foreign policies of governments in the Americas and select countries of the Global South regarding democracy, human rights, social inclusion, and international norms.

In this special event, we will focus on the votes and activities in different multilateral forums dedicated to promoting human rights, including most recently the vote on the resolution led by regional leaders urging the Bolivarian government not to convene a constituent assembly presented at the Organization of American States (OAS) 47th General Assembly.
