Rule of law and human rights in Cuba and Venezuela and EU engagement, Par Egstrom, Giulia Bonacquisti (European Parliament)

TEPSA has recently coordinated a publication for the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI) on “Rule of law and human rights in Cuba and Venezuela and EU engagement”.

The publication is divided in two parts: the report of a DROI workshop by Giulia Bonacquisti (TEPSA, Belgium) and a study on the topic by Par Engstrom (Institute of the Americas, University College London, UK).

This report summarises the proceedings of a workshop organised by the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI). The workshop, which took place in Brussels on 6 September 2018, was chaired by the Vice-Chair of the DROI Subcommittee, Beatriz Becerra Basterrechea (MEP, ALDE, Spain). In preparation to the workshop the DROI Subcommittee had commissioned a study on ‘The situation of rule of law and human rights in Cuba and Venezuela and EU engagement’ to Dr. Par Engstrom (Senior Lecturer in Human Rights at the Institute of the Americas, University College London). In order to discuss the draft study, the author and a number of experts were invited to present their remarks to the room.
