Internal displacement in the Northern Triangle

of Central America

Hundreds of thousands of people in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras—a region known as the Northern Triangle—have been internally displaced as a consequence of widespread violence. Those people are particularly vulnerable, as they flee within their own countries in search of protection and safety.

 

Women, children, older adults, indigenous peoples and Afro-descendant communities are disproportionately affected by this phenomenon.

 

The aim of this report is to provide a practical tool to formulate public policy with a human rights approach to address internal forced displacement.
