CLALS Releases Working Paper No. 21
CLALS released a new working paper, "International Anti-Impunity Missions in Guatemala and Honduras: What Lessons for El Salvador?," which provides sound, detailed analysis of lessons that anti-impunity efforts elsewhere in Central America may hold for El Salvador, as part of an Open Society Foundations-sponsored project. The report, authored by Prof. Charles Call, is informed by previous CLALS-sponsored studies, most notably an analysis of the Mission against Impunity and Corruption in Honduras (MACCIH).
The report was launched in San Salvador, El Salvador, at a public event held at the Universidad Centroamericana José Simeón Cañas, on June 20, 2019. The report is available for download in English and Spanish.
Open Society Foundations has granted the Center $60,000 for a project that will analyze and enhance public understanding of the implications of establishing an international commission against corruption and impunity in El Salvador. This project builds on a previous OSF-funded project on monitoring MACCIH and anti-impunity efforts in Honduras. The project will be led by SIS Professor Charles Call and a team of researchers in Central America and at the Center.
To what extent is climate change driving migration from Central America? CLALS Research Associate Professor Rob Albro spoke to WBUR's Jeremy Hobson in an interview for the Here & Now segment on why climate change is a contributing factor in migrants' decision to leave Central America behind.
