"International community's humanitarian aid within the weakend democracies in Latin America"
Humanitarian aid refers to the expressions of cooperation that a State, an international organization, or a social actor, may offer to the victims of humanitarian crises. In this sense, one of the fundamental principles of the Organization of American States (OAS), is that justice and social security are bases of lasting peace. Under this framework, the OAS has adopted various mechanisms within the sources of International Law, with the ultimate goal of channeling various forms of humanitarian aid to its members. For this reason, resolution GA / RES. 2610 (XL-O / 10), adopted on June 8th, 2010, declares: the Member States are invited to provide their experience, as humanitarian aid recipients and senders, to the corresponding Working Groups; thus giving rise to the first means of communication and action on the subject.
The people of Latin America have been harmed by a sustained weakening of their democracies, which in turn causes mass migratory movements, famines, health crises, fragility in the face of natural disasters, and other highly concerning issues. Governance involved in humanitarian aid, within the OAS context, ideally involves regional, subregional, and national institutional apparatuses that provide various forms of coordination. However, fractured governments have had an impact on the cooperation (offered or accepted) that the OAS Charter promulgates as the ideal one. The debate, therefore, would be oriented towards discussing about the social implications that weakened democracies have generated, the factors that have aggravated regional disagreements, and how they impact humanitarian aid, as well as the proposals that the Organization's Member States would come up with to find a solution to this issue.
