Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights: Contribution to Country Office Honduras

Planned project

The Honduran State is willing to tackle the root causes of high levels of violence and impunity. In March 2014 it has submitted a request to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to open a country office. The office will monitor and report on HR, comment on public policies and build capacity of state institutions and civil society. Higher awareness and better capacity of duty bearers and rights holders will strengthen the rule of law and reduce HR violations and impunity.
