Catherine Fagan collaborates with Lawyers Without Borders Canada in Guatemala

Earlier this month, ALG partner Catherine Fagan travelled to Guatemala with Avocats sans frontières Canada/Lawyers Without Borders Canada, to work with Indigenous lawyers and leaders to provide training and share insights on the rights of Indigenous people to free, prior and informed consultation and consent prior to development of their territories.

You can find a link here to an article published by Avocats sans frontières Canada discussing the themes discussed during the mission and the significant challenges facing Indigenous peoples in Guatemala to having their legal rights recognized.
