In this section we present information and resources about the context of human mobility in Honduras.
In Honduras, widespread violence, corruption and impunity, as well as institutional weakness and the deterioration of the rule of law have confronted its population with a serious and sustained human rights crisis.

The absence of comprehensive responses to assist people on the move has led to a series of complex challenges in guaranteeing their human rights.
