The Northern Triangle countries—Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador—have some of the world’s highest indexes of corruption, due to the erosion of democracy and the weakening of rule of law. Given this context, the defense of human rights in this region is as necessary as it is dangerous. Join us in a discussion on these issues, with human rights defenders from each Northern Triangle country.
Participants on the panel include:
- WOLA Director for Citizen Security Adriana Beltrán
- Iduvina Hernández of Guatemalan human rights group SEDEM
- Alejandra Burgos of the Salvadoran Network of Women Human Rights Defenders
- Jessica Sánchez of Honduran human rights group Grupo Sociedad Civil
- Moderator: Marcia Aguiluz, Mesoamerica Director for CEJIL
