The Colombia Country Guide was produced by Fundación Ideas para la Paz (FIP) with support from Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR).
The Country Guide is a compilation of publicly available information from international institutions, local NGOs, governmental agencies, businesses, media and universities, among others. International and domestic sources are identified on the basis of their expertise and relevance to the Colombian context, as well as their timeliness and impartiality.
An initial survey of publicly available, international sources was carried out by DIHR in 2012. In 2015, the was updated and localized by FIP through multi-stakeholder engagement and capacity building in Colombia. The Guide was then comprehensively updated in 2016.
The completed Country Guide aims to provide a comprehensive overview, on the basis of the information available, of the ways in which companies do or may impact human rights in Colombia and provide recommendations for how to address these impacts. The current Country Guide is not meant as an end product, or a final determination of country conditions. It is intended to be the basis, and the beginning, of a process of dissemination, uptake and modification. DIHR and FIP seek further engagement with local stakeholders, and intend to update the Country Guide on that basis.
