From a qualitative point of view, the purpose of this investigation is to gain in-depth understanding about CICIG’s role within the Guatemalan political context.

It is because of the uniqueness of its mandate, and its great contribution to the fight against corruption and impunity in Guatemala, the reason why CICIG became an interesting case to study.
