Colombia

Colombia is a constitutional, multiparty republic. It is a presidential democracy (bicameral congress with a senate and a house of representatives).
The last presidential and legislative elections were considered free and fair and the most peaceful in decades by observers. The government generally took steps to investigate, prosecute, and punish officials who committed human rights abuses, although some cases experienced long delays. The government generally implemented effectively laws criminalizing official corruption. The government was implementing police reforms focused on enhancing community-police relations, accountability, and human rights.

The overall score indicates that serious violations of human rights happen in this country. Compliance with human rights standards cannot be assumed. High caution should be exercised. Relevant risks for the tourism sector are, e.g.:
  • Violence against LGBTQI+ persons
  • Violence against and forced displacement of Afro-Colombian and indigenous persons
  • Killings and violence against trade unionists
  • Child labor
