Caal v. HudBay is the first case of its kind. Thus, the analysis presented here provides critical insight for international and community actors regarding the successes and shortcomings of collaboration in cases of development-forced displacement, identifying areas for improvement for future collaborations with displaced communities.
Thank you to the community members of Lote Ocho, whose names have been changed here to protect their privacy, to our wonderful translator, to the staff and volunteers at the Guatemala Human Rights Commission (GHRC), and to the other participants in the August 2011 GHRC human rights delegation. It was this delegation experience that first opened my eyes to the harms of development-forced displacement and reinvigorated my passion for anthropological research and activism.
