Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Corruption and complicity fuel the violent, post-coup collapse of Honduran security.


here’s a concentration of power in the military – and it’s increasing. For instance with the military police – now the attorney general can’t investigate them. They’re accompanied by special prosecutors who have been assigned to them by a military-led council.

Researcher Sarah Kinosian explains how political instability, institutionalized corruption, the drug war and American immigration policies created a violent new reality in Honduras, and why unaccountable aid money and increasing militarization make the problem worse.

Sarah is co-author (with Lisa Haugaard) of Honduras: A Government Failing to Protect Its People, a joint report for the Center for International Policy and Latin America Working Group.
