The Latin American Committee of the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) includes sections in Colombia, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, with additional sections based in Cuba and in the United States. Our volunteer human rights defenders on the ground monitor and report on current human rights violations occurring in their countries and also carry out a wide range of projects. These include support for indigenous education and peace building in prisons, among others.
To learn more about specific issue areas and our work in the Americas, see the updates below.


Human Rights Work in Cuba

The ISHR has monitored and criticised the human rights situation in many countries since its foundation in 1972. All countries with a bad human rights record, especially the Soviet Union, the People's Republic of China, Cuba, Vietnam and North Korea have been under observation at all times. Unfortunately, there has always been every reason to criticise their human rights records.
