Centre for the Study of Law, Justice and Society ‒ DeJusticia

Bogota, Colombia

Dejusticia is a Colombia-based research and advocacy organization dedicated to the strengthening of the rule of law and the promotion of social justice and human rights in Colombia and the Global South. We promote positive social change by producing rigorous studies and fact-based policy proposals; carrying out effective advocacy campaigns or litigating in the most impactful forums; and designing and delivering education and capacity-building programs. At Dejusticia, they believe that academic work can be committed to social justice and can contribute to effect change, and they have an “amphibious” approach to our work: they take deep dives in academic and policy-design research and writing with a clear sense of how such work can and will have an impact on our direct action and advocacy.
