Dictatorial Radicalization in Nicaragua: From Repression to Extremism?

This report presents an updated review of the Nicaraguan situation after November 2021 and analyzes the gradual increase in repression that has devolved into systematic impunity, particularly through the closure of NGOs. It also looks at the effects of external financing, the pressure of the international community, and international sanctions. This is a research effort led by the Inter-American Dialogue.
