REACH carries out research on issues involving human rights, organized crime, migration, youth gang violence, labor rights, human trafficking, and physical and sexual violence against women, among many other issues. We illuminate human rights violations and their root causes, as well as the best ways to combat them.

The REACH team has years of experience carrying out in-depth research on issues involving human rights, organized crime, youth gang violence, labor rights, human trafficking, and violence against women and children, among many other issues. In our research, we illuminate major human rights issues in the Americas, as well as their root causes and the best ways to combat them. In addition to desk research and interviews with local experts, we believe that it is essential to interview individuals who are directly affected in order to acquire information about their experiences and perspectives and the best ways to address the issues that they are facing.

 

Members of REACH have participated in research projects on a wide variety of topics and we have the capability to carry out qualitative and quantitative research on a range issues, including human rights violations, organized crime, youth gangs, physical and sexual violence, and environmental and labor issues. Our mission is to improve respect for human rights in the Americas through research, education, and citizen, government, and corporate action.
REACH offers companies, NGOs, and governments our unique experience and expertise, as well as our network of on-the-ground contacts and in-depth knowledge of project design, management, and administration to ensure that your projects are innovative, successful, far-reaching, and sustainable.
