Servicios y Asesoría para la Paz (SERAPAZ)

Mexico City, Mexico
Joined March 2017

I work at a Mexican NGO called Servicios y Asesoría para la Paz (SERAPAZ). I do international advocacy for victims of human rights violations, local communities and grassroots human rights activists.

Presence in: Mexico
Focus: Community / Customary Land Rights, Criminal Justice, Education, Environmental Justice, Land & Natural Resources, Peace-building & Transitional Justice

SERAPAZ is an independent, non-profit Mexican civil society organization. It provides services for the peaceful transformation of social conflicts through the following areas of work: facilitation and networking of community-based processes and initiatives, research and publication, training, consultation, advocacy and accompaniment to peace-building processes.
SERAPAZ was created to provide administrative and financial support to the mediation work of the Comisión Nacional de Intermediación (CONAI). In June 1998 when its work was completed, CONAI transferred the mediation and civil networking work for peace to SERAPAZ.
Since then we had seen a constant increase and polarization of social conflicts, as a product of a social structures that generate inequality and exclusion. Thus, we aim strengthen the capacity of social actors to become protagonists in the positive transformation of conflict in a way that results in just, constructive, democratic and non-violent solutions.
With this purpose, SERAPAZ does the following: fosters dialog with diverse political and social actors involved in the causes of social conflict and necessary solutions, facilitates initiatives for inclusive dialogues, promotes participatory processes with input from civil society to establish new social relations.

SERAPAZ has worked in conflict-transformation processes in many states in the country: Oaxaca, Guerrero, the State of Mexico, the Federal District, Hidalgo, Morelos, Michoacán, Chihuahua, Jalisco among others.
