Webcast available

Webcast Recap

This event will be held in Spanish without interpretation.

Guatemala has struggled with a variety of illegal and clandestine criminal networks (CIACS, in Spanish) for several decades.  These groups have weakened and coopted Guatemalan institutions and political parties through corruption and the use of violence.  Please join us for a discussion about how the CIACS were formed, how they have evolved over time, and how efforts to dismantle them have fared.
