DeJuSticia is an investigation centre created in 2003 by a group of university professors to promote social inclusion, democracy, the State of law and human rights in Colombia and Latin America.
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:
IDPC Partner Members
Partner Members are organisations that play a more active role in IDPC’s day-to-day work. These members have the skills, capacity and contacts to engage governments and international organisations on drug policy reform. This level of membership includes clear expectations in terms of involvement in consultations, efficient communication and contribution to the advocacy work. As a result, the selection of Partner Members will be based on the level of engagement of the organisation in IDPC’s work, geographical representation (with no more than one Partner Member per country in most cases), and thematic relevance.
IDPC Network Members
Network Members are organisations that are mostly involved in IDPC’s communications work at a less intensive level. These members receive all IDPC communications, and are involved in exchange of ideas and information, and joint planned activities. These members will be able to use the IDPC alerts and website to promote their work, and will help share IDPC’s news, publications and products with their own contacts. IDPC will usually welcome organisations as Network Members in the first instance, rather than as Partner Members.
RAISSS is a Latin American network of organisations working together to support marginalised communities including drug users.
Since its creation in 2008, the objective of the corporation ATS has been to include Colombia into the global debate on drug law reform, by taking actions based on practice, social mobilisation and civil society involvement.
Corporación Humanas Colombia is a center for the study and action of feminist policies, whose mission is to promote and defend the human rights of women, humanitarian law and gender justice in Colombia and Latin America.
Elementa considers that the war on drugs has failed, generating a range of grave human rights violations in the past decades. Historically discriminated groups in Latin America have been particularly affected. Elementa works with other civil society groups and government institutions through academic investigation, juridical studies, advocacy and dialogue to develop a regional drug strategy grounded on human rights.
