Central American judiciaries have not been exempt from the recent deterioration in the respect for the rule of law in the region.
Arbitrary dismissals, frivolous complaints, and the possible adoption of measures that would violate judicial independence are some of the threats and risks that Central American judges are facing.
In this virtual conversation, we will speak with members of judges’ associations, like the Central American Federation of Judges for Democracy (FECAJUD), about what judges can do to protect their independence and what role the judges’ associations can play to strengthen the rule of law.
This event will take place in Spanish and will be broadcast live on SIF’s social media.
