Why is Conectas focused on the Global South? Are there no violations in the countries of the North?

Conectas is an organisation founded, based, and positioned to work in synergy between organisations of Global South (Africa, Asia and Latin America), region where 80% of the world’s population is, and where there are serious violations of human rights. That said, violations in the North become the object of Conectas’ interest whenever they involve countries in the South, such as illegal detention of citizens from several Middle Eastern countries in Guantánamo Bay prison in Cuba by the US authorities, which the organisation has already addressed, for example, in one of the issues of the International Colloquium on Human Rights.
