Mexico is facing a serious human rights crisis, and abuses such as enforced disappearances, torture, extrajudicial executions are committed in a generalized and systematic manner. Daily, these practices affect the lives of people, families, and communities. IDHEAS seeks to address this serious crisis through actions that seek to eradicate schemes of impunity that allow these gross human rights violations to take place in Mexico, mainly through the legal accompaniment of cases at the national, regional, and international levels.

In 2020, IDHEAS kept on consolidating itself as a leading organization in terms of strategic litigation before national and international organizations, not only protect the rights of the victims in the specific case, but also fostering structural changes that contribute to the non-repetition of gross human rights violations in Mexico.
