Despite ongoing peace processes and a longstanding democratic history, Colombia struggles with multiple armed groups and widespread drug trafficking, mass internal displacement and systemic human rights violations. To learn more about public perceptions of human rights principles, organizations, and policies, our partners at the Americas and the World network used Human Rights Perception Poll questions to gather data from 1,699 adults living across Colombia in 2013. Explore findings from this nationally representative poll below.
In 2017, we launched a new survey with 960 residents of Bogotá, and began interviewing as many of the city's human rights organizations as we could. We expect to publish the results from this latest study in 2018.
