This presentation has been made by Inter Pares staff member Guillaume Charbonneau on March 26th, 2015 in front of the all-Party Parliamentary Group for the Prevention of Genocide and Other Crimes against Humanity.
Inter Pares has a long history of work with Guatemalan organizations dating back to the 1980s, when we provided support to populations of refugees fleeing the military dictatorships. Our main counterpart in Guatemala (both then and now) is Project Counseling Service or PCS. PCS is a highly respected regional organization that provides long-term accompaniment to communities and civil society organizations throughout Latin America. They work together to build a lasting peace through an integral and rights-based approach that seeks to address the root causes of conflict.
