This initiative aims to strengthen mechanisms to fight corruption and improve the rule of law in Honduras. To do so, it focuses on four main areas of action: preventing and combating corruption; reforming the Honduran criminal justice system; reforming the political and electoral system; and public security. Project activities include: (1) providing technical advice to Honduran institutions such as the Attorney General’s Office, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal, the National Police of Honduras and other entities; (2) establishing an observatory of the criminal justice system to help civil society hold the Government to account; and (3) providing support to the implementation of the new Law for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders, Journalists, Media Personnel, and Justice Officials. The project, implemented by the Organization of American States (OAS), is directly strengthening capacity of civil society and public servants involved in Honduras’ justice and political systems; ultimately indirectly benefiting the entire Honduran population.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) strengthened national institutions to undertake investigation and prosecution to dismantle corruption networks; (2) increased transparency and accountability of Honduran political party system; and (3) enhanced national institutions to implement the reforms of the Honduran justice system.
