“LAB is an independent charitable organisation based in London providing news, analysis and information on Latin America, its people, politics and society. LAB exists to promote greater understanding and awareness of the region through our e-mail newsletter, website and social media. We publish newsletters, interviews, articles, videos and reports on the most critical issues facing the region. We particularly aim to provide a channel for NGOs and civil society in Latin America to tell the world about their work.
For over 40 years, LAB has disseminated information on Latin America aimed at stimulating and influencing debate on issues of human rights, development, social and economic justice, political rights, culture and environmental degradation. We are widely known for our books, including the classic Under the Eagle: U.S. Intervention in Central America and the Caribbean by Jenny Pearce; America’s Backyard by Grace Livingstone; Murder in the Rainforest by Jan Rocha; and Faces of Latin America by Duncan Green.”
