OHCHR in Venezuela

​The UN Human Rights Office has a solid monitoring and reporting background on the human rights situation in Venezuela. It has issued two public reports (2017 and 2018) based on the High Commissioner’s global mandate under General Assembly resolution 48/141, and three additional reports (2019 and 2020) as per Human Rights Council resolutions 39/1 (2018), 42/4 (2019), and 42/25 (2019). Since September 2019, The High Commissioner also presents oral updates on the human rights situation in Venezuela to the Human Rights Council. The UN Human Rights Office will continue its monitoring and reporting work, as mandated by the Human Rights Council resolutions A/HRC/45/L.43 (2020) and A/HRC/45/L.55 (2020).
