Call for a Special Advisor for the Colombian-Venezuelan Border Crisis

After over five years of intermittent closures of formal border crossings, and in the absence of minimal coordination between national institutions in Colombia and Venezuela to address shared border problems, it is urgent to activate a mechanism that can respond to humanitarian and security problems involving both countries.

Therefore, CRIES and GPPAC, supported by a broad civil society coalition, extend a call to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, to urgently designate a special advisor for the common border area between Colombia and Venezuela.
