The Andean Information Network promotes human rights and socioeconomic justice in Bolivia and more humane and effective illicit drug control policies.
Our membership has been growing organically since IDPC was set up in 2006. Members can be NGOs, academic institutions, think tanks or professional networks, but they must have a national or international outlook, and a credible track record in the drug policy field.
There are no membership fees, but all members need to be committed to supporting the IDPC vision and mission, strategic directions, policy principles and work plan.
IDPC has two types of membership: network members help disseminate our ideas and materials, while partner members are more actively engaged in the implementation of our work plan. We come together to facilitate open debate on drug policy issues, and to promote more humane and effective policy at a national and international level.
P.I.E is a Bolivian NGO created to inform and collaborate with international organisations on human rights, drug dependence and law, in order to influence the adoption of more humane public policies.
Founded in early 2013 by Somos Sur, Acción Andina – Bolivia, peasant leaders from the country’s several coca growing areas and individual researchers of San Simón University (UMSS), COLI seeks to develop new strategies to work towards an effective impact of critical and grass-roots based analysis on coca and drug policy in Bolivia and beyond.
Acción Andina – Bolivia is a platform for critical action-research on the impacts of globalisation on local populations and on the agencies for change provoked by these impacts. Acción Andina was established in 1992 as an inter-institutional network of NGO’s in Bolivia, Colombia and Peru in order to provide independent regional analysis on drugs, drug policies and related issues; and to accompany populations and grass-roots organisations in their efforts to deal with the violence and injustice brought along by both drug business and drug policies.
