The publications of Interpaz cover issues on gender equality, culture of peace, violence prevention, and safeguarding the rights of children and youth from the perspectives of partner organizations and children, adolescents, and young people from the four countries that are part of the initiative: Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.
The first year of the Covid-19 pandemic deepened inequalities and violence in Latin America, particularly affecting children and youth. This publication uncovers a few of these experiences, along with statements from children and young people regarding their experiences and concerns. Chief among these is the increase in intra-family violence and State violence, in addition to the increase in femicide and violence against girls and women, as well as the scarcity of gender-based measures to combat the pandemic.
There are also considerations from the Project’s partner organizations regarding their 2020 trajectories, ranging from challenges and lessons learned to necessary adjustments made in order to continue to promote the rights of children and youth in their respective countries.
