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 right to migrate and the right to stay home. 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 forced migration and 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.
As we experience the richness of Honduran culture and life, we will challenge ourselves to find new ways to act in favor of human rights.
