Social Corporation for Community Advisory and Training Services Casanare (COSPACC)

Casanare, Colombia

The Social Corporation for Community Advisory and Training Services (La Corporación Social para la Asesoría y Capacitación Comunitaria – COSPACC) is principally dedicated to providing attention and accompaniment to victims due to the high numbers of human rights abuses in the regions where it works, especially in the departments of Tolima, Boyacá, Casanare and the city of Bogota.

It does so while remaining focused on its principal objective, which is reconstructing social fabric and providing on-going training to promote and defend human rights and international humanitarian law.

Alongside COSPACC and UK-based firm Deighton Pierce Glyn, we run The Oil Justice Project. The Oil Justice Project works to ensure that the victims and survivors of corporate-sponsored violence and environmental damage can obtain justice for the whole community, and not just compensation for individuals. The Oil Justice Project helps to rebuild, unite and empower communities in Casanare.
