Think tank

The purpose of the Legal Defense Institute is the promotion and defense of human rights, democracy and peace in Peru and Latin America. It combines knowledge of the internal reality of the country and the needs of the population with the ability to formulate technical proposals that contribute to the debate and development of public policies and a great capacity to influence public opinion through its own media.
