Country: Honduras

Honduras is among the poorest and most unequal countries in the world and suffers from the world’s highest homicide rate. Corruption is also a problem, which, added to the perception of insecurity, has had the effect of eroding confidence in the country’s institutions. As a direct result of these dire conditions, Alianza por la Paz y la Justicia (Alliance for Peace and Justice) was born in the end of 2011 to perform social auditing, conduct legislative advocacy and generate spaces for inclusive citizen participation for the efficient and effective development of the Honduran justice and security system. This report aims to answer whether Alianza por la Paz y la Justicia serves as an effective model for civil society participation in advancing justice and security reform in Honduras.
