The Situation of Human Rights in Colombia – 2018-2022
Report of International Coordination Groups and Organisations for the Universal Periodic Review of Colombia 2023
CIDSE is one of the signatories of the shadow human rights report on Colombia, prepared by an ad hoc coalition of 67 international organisations, coordinated by the International Human Rights Office – Action Colombia (OIDHACO). The document was released in Brussels on 28 June 2023, ahead of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) for Colombia.
The report was delivered to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) within the framework of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process, to which Colombia will be submitted in November 2023 for the fourth time since the process started.
In the 2018 UPR, Colombia received 220 recommendations from other UN Member States aimed at improving the human rights situation in the country. Many of these recommendations insisted on the full implementation of the 2016 peace agreement as a guarantee for human rights.
