Violent Incidents Database

The Violent Incidents Database (VID) is a service of the Observatory of Religious Freedom in Latin America to collect, record and analyze violent incidents concerning violations of religious freedom in Latin American countries.

To access the VID please click here or scroll down to the bottom of this page.

The VID aims to give an indication of the numbers of people experiencing violence on grounds of faith in Latin America but cannot claim to be an exhaustive listing. The data included in the VID is based on reports published in digital media available on the internet. Many incidents are never made public and are hence not included. If you are aware of an incident and want to report it, you can do it through our online form.

There are times when incidents reported in the media are incorrect. We do not have the capacity to verify all incidents listed. However, where reports are flagged up as being false or incorrect, the corresponding entries are altered or deleted. If you think a case is missing or was erroneously reported about, please contact us.
