In this week-long seminar in Honduras, we will participate in intercultural learning with human rights defenders, academics, legal professionals, and community leaders from Honduras and the United States to deepen our understanding of the evolving dynamics of forced migration. The Honduran context will help us better understand the role of governments, civil society, and the international community in protecting the rights of all people, to stay in their home countries or cross borders.
Using the current political, social, and economic context of Honduras as a sending country and the United States as a receiving country, we will pay special attention to the understanding of the rights of people who are internally and externally displaced. US immigration policy and the capacity of the Honduran state to protect citizens and guarantee rights will be studied through the lens of international human rights norms and the experiences of migrants and asylum seekers.
How we learn
- Engage directly with Cristosal’s work in Central America with expert input on key topics from speakers or presenters.
- Deepen our understanding of how democracy and human rights support each other.
- Apply a human rights approach to promoting social justice in our local context.
- Experience– all too briefly– the food, daily life, sites, and people of Guatemala.
