Panama: Addressing Racial Profiling

The Clinic, in partnership with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Panama and the Defensoría del Pueblo (Ombudsperson) conducted research and document the situation of racial profiling in Panama. The Clinic wrote a memo to our partners in Panama outlining the factual situation in the country and also providing with international legal standards dealing with racial profiling. During fall 2013, Human Rights Clinic students visited Panama to gather information.  They wrote a detailed report on this issue.
