Country Study: Colombia


In 2009, a second pilot project was started in Colombia (NOTE: the first pilot project was conducted in India). The project in Colombia focused on waste pickers and informal miners, documenting and analysing the laws impinging on these workers. The study was conducted by RRA (Public Law + Social Innovation) through its lead researcher Ms. Adriana Ruiz-Restrepo. The other researchers on the project include Ms. Shailly Barnes (Senior Researcher), Mr. Sebastian Torres (Research Assistant) and Mr. Camilo Barrera (Research Assistant).
