Nicaragua’s political crisis, which began six months ago, continues. It does so marked by repression, serious human rights abuses, and a paralyzed economy. The opposition and the international community continue to push for a national dialogue with the government. Protests persist despite censorship, as well as the detentions of activists and people migrating into exile. International actors, including the Organization of American States, the European Union, and the United Nations have called for urgent action to work towards peace.
A new alliance of Nicaraguan organizations, Unidad Azul y Blanco, has emerged to step up demands for dialogue, democracy, and justice. What are the prospects that this effort will succeed while others have not? Is there any evidence that the Ortega government is prepared to have a dialogue to pursue a negotiated solution to the country crisis?
To discuss these developments, we are pleased to have a panel of experts join us for a most relevant and timely discussion.
