Human Rights Observation in Honduras

In the summer of 2009 President Manuel Zelaya was ousted by the Honduran army. With its political instability and increase in violence the human rights situation has since worsened drastically.  Gross human rights violations committed by security personnel and other armed actors go hand in hand with impunity. Political murders, constant threats and forced migration are part of daily life in Honduras.

PWS sends Human Rights Observers to work within the Project PROAH (Proyecto de Acompañamiento Internacional en Honduras). Increasing insecurity has led to a decline in Human Rights Accompaniments last year. The project is currently being evaluated and as of Summer 2015 there are no volunteers present in Honduras yet future accompaniments are being anticipated.
