Since the beginning of the Venezuelan migrant and refugee crisis in 2018, the Working Group on Venezuelan Human Mobility has accompanied Venezuelan migrants and refugees throughout the region in the search for solutions that guarantee the full enjoyment of their human rights.
The working group, coordinated by CEJIL, is a network composed of dozens of civil society organizations that brings together important national, regional and international advocacy actions, including before the Quito process, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, UNHCR, the OAS, among others. The group lifts the voices of civil society organizations, migrants and refugees to key decision-making spaces, deepens and collaborates in regional coordination and the exchange of experiences in different countries of the region.
Together we created an Action Plan that serves as a road map for a coordinated response with a human rights perspective to Venezuelan human mobility. You can access our Action Plan here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VyIBJh0CPUs58gQWODuk1qoQsPKRjTMF/view

CEJIL uses international law and represents victims of human rights violations so that damages can be repaired and policy or legal reforms can be carried out so human rights violations do not occur again. We meet, discuss, generate, and share information in order to raise awareness about endemic human rights problems and find solutions, with the goal of fostering the creation of public policies that respect human rights throughout the region. CEJIL has intervened in national litigation through amicus curiae, as well as in national and international decision-making spaces, where public policies that affect Venezuelan migrants and refugees are discussed, in order to ensure that each decision has a human right based approach.
