To all our readers, members and friends: we would like to invite you to our upcoming annual conference, taking place on 16 November 2019, at the Global Governance Institute, UCL (29-31 Tavistock Square, London).

This year we are very fortunate to count on the presence of Julia Cuadros, from Cooperacción a Peruvian human rights NGO and long-time PSG partner, and also of Virginia Pinares, a human rights defender from Cotabambas province, Apurímac region who has representated civil society at the various dialogue tables arising from the conflict over Las Bambas.

A detailed agenda of the day will be distributed soon. We hope to see you all there, so please put it in your diary. We plan to start at 10.30am and finish by 5pm. The PSG’s AGM will be held for members during the lunch break.
Places are limited. To ensure your place write to coordinator@perusupportgroup.org.uk

  • PSG Aims

    The Peru Support Group exists to promote social inclusion, sustainable development and the observance of human rights in Peru. To that end the PSG highlights shortcomings in observance of established norms, whether international or local in nature, in its research, advocacy and publications. In so doing, it underscores the relationships that exist within the political system, how institutions work, and the effectiveness of policies that aim to reduce poverty and inequality within the context of sustainable development.

  • Historical Overview

    Over the past century Peru has suffered a series of autocratic governments and a civil war in which nearly 70,000 people died. Many of the country's ongoing political and social problems are a legacy of its somewhat turbulent past. 

  • Human Rights

    Human rights violations were widespread during the twenty years after the initiation of armed conflict in 1980. Efforts to convict perpetrators since the war's end have made only limited progress. Today, concerns remain over the treatment of those engaged in social protest, particularly against strategically important investment projects.
