The international human rights movement faces a context of uncertainty due to: (i) the rise of a multipolar world with new emerging powers, (ii) the emergence of new actors and legal and political strategies, (iii) the challenges and opportunities presented by information and communication technologies, as well as (iv) the threat posed by extreme environmental degradation.
Human rights are undergoing a transformation. Around the world debates have proliferated regarding human rights discourses, practices, and studies to the point that some speak about "the end of human rights." This context is unlike anything since the beginning of the international human rights system around the mid twentieth century.
Given the disappointing implementation levels in various countries and across human rights systems, this guide seeks to contribute to the discussion regarding strategies for courts, international decision-makers, and civil society to increase the implementation of ESCR decisions.

This report presents the results of a study on living conditions and residential segregation in twelve cities of Colombia
In this book we hope to contribute empirically to the issue of women's political representation in Colombia. Additionally, the book brings attention to the necessity to develop intermediary theoretical proposals that can open the conceptual debate regarding the inclusion and representation of women in the political arena.
The Colombian Attorney General's Office´s quantitative records show that investigative efforts are employed irrationally. The absence of a strategic prioritization policy —as opposed to the unclear and arbitrary way officials currently process cases— does not allow criminal policy efforts to focus on investigating the most important cases.
