International Human Rights Day 2011

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society

HRP members produced scientifically sound analysis that is advancing the process of legal justice in Guatemala. In a recent blog post , I described how HRP statistician Daniel Guzmán’s expert testimony in a breakthrough legal case against two former police officers helped score a remarkable victory in the fight to end impunity in Guatemala. We’re honored to support the process towards justice and accountability at this critical time in Guatemala’s history.

Seeds for a Future Part 3: Creating a sustainable future

ASU Lodestar Center

This may be the most overused and least accurate phrase we hear nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) utter in Guatemala. Before raising the hopes of any community, one of the first things an NGO should ask itself is: After we leave, what will remain in the community, and is it something they want and can sustain? But at the same time, if they do not establish the nursery as a successful business, it will fail within a few months of when the NGO stops providing money.
