No Place to Hide : Gang, State, and Clandestine Violence in El Salvador, Paperback / softback Book

No Place to Hide : Gang, State, and Clandestine Violence in El Salvador Paperback / softback

Part of the Human Rights Program Series series

Description

Seventeen years after the civil war in El Salvador came to an end, violence and insecurity continue to shape the daily lives of many Salvadorans.

This book examines the phenomenon of youth gangs, as well as related police abuse, clandestine violence, and their collective impact on the rule of law.

Beginning with an evaluation of the historical legacy of violence in El Salvador and the limitations of postwar efforts to construct functioning democratic and judicial institutions, "No Place to Hide" analyzes the dynamic evolution of violent street gangs and the Salvadoran state's responses to gang-related and other forms of violence.

The book's findings are based on primary research conducted in El Salvador between 2006 and 2008.
