Daniel Wilkinson is the managing director of the Americas division at Human Rights Watch. "His book, Silence on the Mountain, won the 2003 PEN/Albrand award for outstanding first nonfiction by an American author."
On September 19, 2008, Wilkinson and Jose Miguel Vivanco were expelled from Venezuela for "violat[ing] the constitution by criticizing the government while on tourist visas." Vivanco and Wilkinson had arrived from New York to release a HRW report on the Venezuelan political system, but both were ordered onto the first flight out of Venezuela.
