CURRENT PROJECT

Promoting human rights in Nicaragua

The human rights organization CENIDH, with its impartial commitment and recognized legal expertise, works for the protection of human rights in Nicaragua. ​

CENIDH | Managua | 1990

Since 1990, CENIDH has been advocating for the victims of human rights violations in Nicaragua, advising them, accompanying them to court and taking up the cases in public. With its impartial commitment, its recognized legal expertise and its nationwide network of local promoters, the human rights organization CENIDH is well equipped to do this, even in difficult situations.​

Problem

According to its constitution, Nicaragua is a presidential democracy with a unicameral parliament. The government, administration, judiciary, almost all media and the ruling Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional (FSLN) are controlled by the presidential family. Nicaragua has been in a severe crisis since the violent suppression of protests in April 2018, which left approximately 300 people dead. Fundamental rights, such as the right to free speech and freedom of assembly, are under acute threat.​

Solution

Critical monitoring of political developments in Nicaragua is essential. In a new project, special human rights defenders are to be trained. The training of one person costs 87 euros per year.​

Why we support the project

The political situation in Nicaragua puts the population in a position of massive human rights violations on a daily basis. Despite sanctions imposed by other countries, the people in Nicaragua need new courage and hope. We would like to contribute to this by supporting the work of human rights defenders on the ground. The DZI certifies that CIR handles donations responsibly. The German website of CENIDH is made possible with the support of the European Union and the Foundation for Environment and Development.
