Human Rights Ombudsman in Guatemala

Over the period of several months, JGG has been supporting the Human Rights Ombudsman in Guatemala in developing an institutional strengthening program.  The JGG team of Carmen Ruiz (Bolivia), Otto Valle (Guatemala), Hernando Toro (Colombia), Guillermo Roca (Bolivia) and José Miguel López (Canada) met in Guatemala City last August for an intensive week of workshops. JGG is also providing technical assistance in preparation for a new institutional program in the areas:  human rights theory and methodology; structure and functions; and international cooperation management.  This process is being funded by the Swedish Embassy in Guatemala, in anticipation of their support to the new program with the Ombudsman from 2019 to 2024.
