Guatemala : the role of judicial modernization in post conflict reconstruction and social reconciliation (Inglés)

The Peace Accords of 1996 brought an end to 36 years of armed conflict in Guatemala, and signaled the beginning of a complex and challenging process of reconstruction and social reconciliation. A central plank of the consensus expressed in the Peace Accords was the overhauling of Guatemala's public institutions, which were seen to exacerbate the social and economic injustices that had contributed to the conflict. The Judicial Branch was identified as one of the key state institutions, in a position to create the necessary conditions to help a divide, and diverse population emerge from decades of conflict, social and economic exclusion, and mistrust in public governance. A Bank-supported Judicial Modernization Project is in its third year of implementation, and helping in this process along with other donors (UNDP, Sweden, Finland, the Inter American development Bank -IDB, Soros Foundation and others).
