Weekly InSight: Security Outlook for Honduras Election Crisis

ELITES AND CRIME / 7 DEC 2017 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN

In our December 7 Facebook Live session, independent journalist Sarah Kinosian spoke with Senior Editor Mike LaSusa about the ongoing election crisis in Honduras and its likely impacts on crime and security.

Kinosian discussed her analysis of the current security situation in Honduras based on her recent on-the-ground reporting. She and LaSusa spoke about a brief police strike earlier this week, and how institutional confusion and political polarization can establish fertile conditions for the flourishing of organized crime.

They also mentioned the role of the United States, which has provided significant security assistance to Honduras in recent years and has been criticized for its handling of the current turmoil there.
