Colombia - The Process of Implementation of the Voluntary Principles

This Colombian case study outlines the multi-stakeholder process that led to the creation of the “National Committee for the Implementation of the Voluntary Principles”, which in 2008 was renamed the Mining and Energy Committee on Security and Human Rights (CME). The case study identifies key factors that have made the CME and its implementation of the VPs a success in Colombia and aims to highlight how this approach might be applicable in different contexts.
