SIPAZ is an international organization legally incorporated in the United States and the Netherlands, but its mission is mainly carried out in and from Mexico.

SIPAZ develops its work through an international team based in San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, from which we travel to the main areas of conflict in the state. Since 2005, our team has expanded its work to the states of Oaxaca and Guerrero, with frequent visits to those states, though without permanent offices there. Marina Pagés (France) has been the team’s Coordinator since 2001.
