OHCHR in Honduras
In 2010 a senior Human Rights Adviser (HRA) was deployed to Honduras, after a request was received by the Honduran government for closer engagement with OHCHR. The Advisor’s main priorities include:
The thematic priorities of the Human Rights Adviser are: widening the democratic space; countering discrimination; combating impunity, strengthening accountability and the rule of law; early warning and protection of human rights in the context of conflict, violence and insecurity; strengthening the effectiveness of international human rights mechanisms and the progressive development on international human rights law.
The Human Rights Advisor has been working closely with the Minister for Justice and Human Rights, the Human Rights Unit of the Attorney General’s Office, the National Mechanism for the Prevention of Torture, the Ministry for Security, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, as well as with different Commissions set up by the Government to reform citizen security and the prison system.
