ICAR and Dejusticia Release Assessment of Colombian National Action Plan

The International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) and the Center for the Study of Law, Justice, and Society (Dejusticia) are pleased to publish an assessment of the Colombian National Action Plan (NAP). The assessment is based off of the NAPs Checklist developed and published by ICAR and the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) as part of the ICAR-DIHR Naps Toolkit. The NAPs Checklist lays out a set of twenty-five criteria that address both the content of NAPs and the process for developing them.

This assessment is part of a larger effort by ICAR to assess all existing NAPs on business and human rights. In November 2015, ICAR and the European Coalition for Corporate Justice (ECCJ) published an updated version of their joint report Assessments of Existing National Action Plans (NAPs) on Business and Human Rights, which systematically assessed NAPs from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, and Sweden.
