It collects the analytical works of human rights organizations, professionals, academics, students and activists and makes them available on-line to the global community. Our aim is to provide human rights workers all over the world with information and views not easily or cheaply available though other means.

Ko'aga is a joint publication of Equipo Nikzor and Derechos Human Rights. Its principal languages are Spanish and English, though manuscripts in other languages are accepted. We publish original works and those that have appeared in other publications of limited distribution. Ko'aga is divided into nine thematic series, within each series articles are organized by volumes representing sub-topics. Most volumes are open-ended and articles are added when they become available. Volumes gathering proceedings of conferences, however, only include the papers presented there.

We hope Ko'aga will be of use to you, and we invite you to both read it and collaborate with articles.
