The Stop Impunity Project, in partnership with the University of El Salvador and the Office of the Ombudsman for the Protection of Human Rights will offer a four-week summer intensive program in modern Salvadoran History and Human Rights.

The program has been designed for students of law, sociology, history, human rights, anthropology, social work and other related disciplines and is also appropriate for those working with immigration organizations and legal and social service providers that support the Salvadoran and Central America community.

Core classes will be taught by faculty from the University of El Salvador’s MA program in Human Rights and/or the staff of the Salvadoran Human Rights Ombudsman’s office.

Participants will visit El Mozote, where more than 900 villagers were massacred by the army; the Universidad Centroamericana; the church where Archbishop Romero was assassinated, and his tomb in the national cathedral.

The language of instruction will be Spanish and participants should be capable of participating in classroom discussions in Spanish.
