Democracy and the extraordinary measures

Cristosal is researching the effects of the extraordinary measures on democracy. Our investigation center is documenting abuses in Salvadoran prisons, and is attempting to document what the medidas have actually achieved. Our research is guided by the principle that everyone’s human rights, even incarcerated people’s, should be respected and guaranteed.
