Let’s talk about the right to protest. Insights from two territorial dialogue processes in Colombia

Under the Police Innovations for Stabilization Program, supported by the British Embassy and the International Organization for Migration, we designed and implemented two territorial dialogue strategies between August 2021 and March 2023 in nine subregions and 58 municipalities where Territorial Development Programs with a Territorial Approach (PDET) are implemented. In this document, we present the conceptual foundations that guided the design of these two strategies, their main results, and what we learned during the process so that it can serve all those people, social organizations, public officials and institutions that work for the promotion of spaces for genuine dialogue and in the defense and protection of the right to public demonstration in Colombia.

The drafting and publication of this document were made possible thanks to the support of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation of the Colombian Government within the framework of the research strengthening project “Institutionalization, New Citizenships, Identity and Social Inclusion”.
