UNARC coordinated civil society participation in the first EMLER regional visit to South America. From November 28 to December 2, governments, stakeholders, impacted people, and civil society met in Santiago de Chile with participants from 10 South American countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela).
UNARC worked with its members in South America to coordinate the civil society side of the visit and to ensure that civil society’s inputs would concretely impact EMLER’s consultations with governments in South America. In total, UNARC coordinated the engagement of 33 member organizations; eight of those members attended in-person in Chile, and the remainder participated virtually. Family members of people killed by police were given special time to testify about their experiences and to offer concrete solutions.
