Centro para la Acción Legal en los Derechos Humanos (CALDH)

Centro para la Accion Legal en los Derechos Humanos (CALDH) was founded in 1983 to challenge impunity in Guatemala and preserve the memory of the country’s violent past. CALDH represents victims of gross human rights violations committed during the armed conflict before the courts, provides legal advice and representation to current human rights defenders, and supports the strengthening of local organisations and victims’ groups, particularly women survivors. CALDH also conducts public engagement activities through its ‘Memory House’, seeking to connect the impunity of the past to the current challenges that Guatemala faces.
