We believe that empowered communities imbued in a culture of inclusiveness, and stronger, more rights-focused institutions can ignite virtuous cycles of community engagement, policy reform, and accountability.  We work to strengthen the rule of law and the voice of the Global South, empower vulnerable and marginalized communities, and combat inequality with a human rights focus.

Our teams work in seven thematic areas, nationally and internationally.

Transitional Justice

We focus on the rights of victims to truth, justice, reparation and reconciliation in Colombia, with an international perspective, which we bring through case studies of constitutional transitions in other regions and countries.

 

Dejusticia is an action-research center for legal and social studies. We believe that academic research can be committed to social justice and that our direct advocacy can be enriched by rigorous research.  We are multidisciplinary and unafraid to experiment with multiple tools to effect change. 

We have five cross-cutting teams, which work across all issue areas, just as issue areas collaborate with all cross-cutting teams. 

 

Litigation

We develop, present and follow up on our own cases presented before the High Courts of Colombia. We also intervene, assist in or file amicus curiae in existing cases before Courts in Colombia, other countries, or before Commission or the Court in the Inter-American System.

 

Global South & North Collaborations

Coordinated by our Internationalization area, we seek to produce concrete changes in the practice and framing of human rights at the international level by amplifying the voice of the Global South to encourage the global human rights movement to be more diverse in ideas, debates and practices, and by fortifying the global human rights movement through collaboration, expertise and experience sharing, capacity-building and education, etc.

 

Education

We design and provide human rights education and capacity-building opportunities in a variety of formats—from online resources to workshops and conferences—to amplify the work of Global South advocates and assist academics, judges, policy designers and communities who seek to improve human rights conditions.

 

Communications

We work with all teams to identify themes, specific objectives, messages, and audiences, and to propose tools and develop effective language for greater impact. We are also journalists, and publish long form journalism in various news outlets.

Publications

We promote positive social change by producing rigorous studies and research-based policy proposals.  Publications are coordinated by our Operational Support area.

 

The New Routinization of Inhumanity: Small Acts of Staggering Consequence

Perhaps it’s time to state firmly, and insistently, that we see everyone who let themselves be swooped up in machines of inhumanity, and not just the masterminds. And perhaps it’s not too late to call out enough of the small bureaucrats and agents so that they, too, squirm, question and upend the pact of purposeful obtuseness that is required to carry on with systems of oppression designed to harm from a safe distance.

Taxes on soft drinks in the Americas: trend or necessity

More than a trend, the increasing number of countries implementing a tax on soft drinks shows that this kind of fiscal measure is a cost-efficient policy to tackle the obesity epidemic in the Americas.

The justice needs of the world

States need to know the legal needs of their populations and the ways in which citizens act to manage and resolve those needs in order to design better schemes for the resolution of disputes and for providing access to justice.

Partner Websites & Blogs

Dejusticia has launched multiple initiatives that have become stand-alone projects. This is part of our work to strengthen the voice of the Global South and provide useful tools for diverse communities.
