Latin America and the Caribbean Program
ICNL supports the efforts of local partners throughout Latin America and the Caribbean to promote a legal environment that strengthens civil society, advances freedom of association, fosters philanthropy, and enables public participation. We collaborate with leaders of civil society organizations (CSOs), government officials, legislators, academics, and others to develop reform proposals that meet local needs. ICNL has recently carried out activities in Bolivia, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, and Venezuela.

ICNL has collaborated with partners to produce reports on the legal environment for CSOs in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, and Peru.
ICNL’s Spanish language resources include laws, regulations, and analysis from 25 Latin American and Caribbean countries.
NGO Law Monitor
ICNL produces country profile reports that provide an overview of key issues relating to the freedom of association and the NGO legal framework, with a focus on legal barriers affecting civil society. NGO Law Monitor reports are available for Colombia, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Venezuela, and the Organization of American States.
