Judges for Justice in Guatemala - panel debate
Meet four high-profile judges from Guatemala and listen to their struggle for the rule of law and justice: Yassmin Barrios, Haraldo Vasquez, Miguel Angel Galvez and Claudia Gonzales in dialogue with Elin Skaar (CMI).
The visiting judges are fighting daily for the rule of law and justice in their home country Guatemala – risking both their own lives as well as the health and safety of their family members.
They are struggling for independent courts as a tool against violence and corruption.
The judges will be visiting Bergen as guest of the Human Rights Committee, the Norwegian Judges Association. In an open seminar hosted by the Centre on Law & Social Transformation, the judges will share their experience from their work at the Guatemalan Court for High Risk Crimes and the Femicide Court.
The event will be held in Spanish and English.
