Violence and gang crime continue to make Honduras one of world’s most dangerous countries, causing widespread inequality and poverty which in turn entail a risk of migration and human trafficking. Much of the violence is domestic or intra-familial in nature. In this insecure environment, many citizens, especially women and children, struggle to access justice and legal refuge.
To protect these populations, IDLO is working to increase the provision of legal support services for women, children and other vulnerable populations, develop the capacity of justice professionals, enhance legal awareness in the communities and support re-integration for prisoners.
With the commitment to implementing the United Nations' 2030 Agenda, IDLO's activities in Honduras worked to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals 5, 8, 10 and 16. [ Find out more ]
