The International Office for Human Rights Action on Colombia

Oidhaco and international organizations present shadow report on human rights in Colombia for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR)

On 28 June 2023, a shadow human rights report on Colombia, prepared by an ad hoc coalition of 67 international organizations, coordinated by the International Human Rights Office – Action Colombia (OIDHACO) was published in Brussels 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.
