Fulbright, Venezuela, Human Rights, Transitional Justice


Since the rise of the Bolivian Revolution back in 1999, Venezuela has seen multiple violations of human rights. As a matter of fact, these violations have increased steadily through the years, and the international community has not acted properly to thee terrible facts. Almost 20 years later the United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner published Report No A/hrc/41/18 of Human Rights details the situation in the Bolivian Republic of Venezuela, which presents the horror that Venezuelans have lived with quite a long time. Furthermore, the International Community must use Transitional Justice for restoring democracy, justice and peace in the South American country.
