About Us

PBI provides protection, support and recognition to local human rights defenders who work in areas of repression and conflict and have requested our support. We believe that lasting transformation of conflicts cannot come from outside, but must be based on the capacity and desires of local people. We avoid imposing, interfering or getting directly involved in the work of the people we accompany. Our work is effective because we take an integrated approach, combining a presence alongside human rights defenders on the ground with an extensive network of international support. PBI has worked in Colombia since 1994.


Peace Brigades International (PBI) es una Organización No-Gubernamental (ONG), registrada ante la ONU, que mantiene en Colombia, desde 1994, un equipo de observadores/acompañantes internacionales. El objetivo es la protección del espacio de actuación de los/as defensores/as de derechos humanos que sufren represión por su trabajo no violento en pro de los derechos humanos. Para conseguir este objetivo, el Equipo de PBI Colombia permanece sobre el terreno acompañando a las personas u organizaciones amenazadas, distribuyendo información sobre la evolución del conflicto, realizando labores de interlocución y cabildeo con las autoridades civiles y militares, así como con organismos estatales, ONGs, Iglesia, cuerpo diplomático y otras organizaciones internacionales para promover la cobertura internacional. PBI no tiene ninguna afiliación política o religiosa.
