Partners Colombia Por El Cambio Democrático
Partners Colombia is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in Bogotá, Colombia that promotes the strengthening of institutions and civil society and peaceful coexistence, applying change management methodologies and conflict management, through the promotion of human rights, democracy, justice, participation, environmental protection, management and business advisory. Our areas of action are:
Promote institutional strengthening in the public and private sectors by applying methodologies that advance good governance, transparency, public policy processes, conflict resolution, and consensus building.
Justice and Democracy
Promote understanding and respect for human rights and the rule of law, through legal education and community and social awareness programs, and through advocating for policy and legal reforms using conflict resolution techniques.
Under this area of action, Partners Colombia has initiated the program "Strengthening the rights of the Wayúu". This program promotes access to traditional and formal justice systems for the indigenous Wayúu population.
