    Supporting Victims in Colombia

    In Colombia peace organisation PAX offers support to victims of the armed conflict and their families. In particular, we seek to increase the capacity of victims’ organisations from the Cesar, Cauca and Meta (Macarena) regions to push for the implementation of their rights. Furthermore, in the Cauca region PAX accompanies the reintegration of former (guerrilla) combatants from indigenous and Afro-Colombian communities, who – after the signing of the Peace Agreement – are expected to return to their communities of origin.

    Mining and conflict in Colombia

    Mining activities have been going on in conflict or high-risk areas leading to adverse impacts on human rights. In Colombia, PAX works together with local communities and victims' organizations in the Cesar department to address these impacts, improve the security situation and promote dialogue between different actors in the region.
