Abstract

How the balance is struck between accountability for past human rights violations, structural changes that can contribute to a better human rights future, and achieving peace is examined in this article. The article describes the efforts of El Rescate, a small NGO, and how through the projects it developed and implemented facilitated measurable improvement in the human rights situation in El Salvador. By analyzing its efforts, this article hopes to contribute to an understanding of how change agents can develop unique and innovative tools during transitions toward peace that maximize the transformative potential to benefit the human rights situation.
