Institutional Structure

There are two objectives that frame our action, the reinforcement of the Rule of Law, and the promotion of the Peace Building and the Good Governance. For the development of these two objectives and areas of work we have a set of institutions. Firstly there is “ideaborn SL” which was created in Barcelona in 1999. Then there is “ideaborn USA LLC” created in Washington DC in 2011 – they offer consulting services in the fields of bilateral and multilateral cooperation. The “ideaborn foundation”, created in Medellín in 2010, reinforces ideaborn’s projects with its own interventions in the field of human rights and social justice. Thanks to this structure, we have been able to establish and consolidate programs with a long-term vision from the ideaborn foundation: “The America’s juvenile violence prevention and access to justice fund- Fondo Recuerda” www.fondorecuerda.com and the “Global Citizenship Education Fund”. Finally, ideaborn reinforces its social actions through “ideaborn SAS” which was created in 2009 in order to advise on international trade in developing countries. In addition to supporting the generation of employment by applying international trade agreements, it generates resources for the development of the areas mentioned.



Created in 1999, Ideaborn SL is a consulting firm that carries out initiatives in order to improve the access to, and progressive enjoyment of, the civil, political and cultural rights of vulnerable people. Working in collaboration with different bodies in society, either in the public or private sector, Ideaborn provides the necessary technical assistance for the formulation, implementation and evaluation of bilateral, multilateral and non-governmental international cooperation projects.


Ideaborn-foundation was founded in 2010 in Medellín, Colombia by Ideaborn SL to complement its work to promote human rights at the state level. It is a not-for-profit organization whose central mission is the promotion and dissemination of human rights. Ideaborn-foundation receives a third of the net benefits of ideaborn SL annually and adds this funding to other possible public and private sources.

Vision & Mision


Ideaborn responds globally to briefs for research, consultancy, training and technical assistance, but focuses its investments in the south of the Mediterranean, Colombia and Central America. Primarily aimed at professionals and young people, ideaborn’s activities and cooperation projects are always promoted with a view to achieving effective and local impact. It is important to note that in these programs, as in everything that we do, our work focuses on supporting people, especially those in vulnerable situations, as well as in the improvement of public institutions in their social action. To this end, ideaborn develops its work through an active promotion of synergies between the different sectors involved: the public sector, the business sector, the academic world and civil society. The aim is to offer a permanent forum for social and institutional interaction that facilitates the definition of strategies and concrete action in the area of ​​the promotion of human rights and social justice at a global level.


Ideaborn was created due to the intimate conviction that the respect of Human Rights and the access to justice represent fundamental elements to the development of all societies. According to our vision, our work will allow us in the next years to contribute to the development of:

A structured and efficient public sector, capable to guarantee universal access to the fundamental rights through services of quality answering the necessities of the society.

A civil society built on strong actors. Actors able to, on one hand, promote human rights and facilitate the access to justice of the vulnerable populations, and on the other hand, assess and control the respect, the offer and the quality of such services made by the public sector



During those 20 years of work, we acquired know-how and practical experiences in different countries and regions of the world that allow us  to realize constructive comparisons and take advantage of learned lessons. Therefore, the fact to realize comparative experience clearly facilitates us the use and adaptation of best practices to a new cultural and geographical context.


We have a strong commitment, not only to our clients, but as well to the final beneficiaries of every set initiatives of international cooperation. Thus, we consider crucial to insure the quality of the work, especially on the work field; to reach this goal, we make available to our experts and partners a “back-up team” located in our offices.

Institutional Strengthening

Besides, in every country where we work, we develop an intense activity of analysis and networking with local entities (public and private) which allowed us to develop a deep knowledge of the country’s real situation regarding our sectors of intervention.
We consider what mentioned above of critical importance to ascertain the sustainability and effectiveness of any initiatives of international cooperation.

Permanent support to consultants

This team bolsters experts in the step to step development of theirs missions;   whether in projects implemented by ideaborn or when working with thirds. In particular are being proposed tailor-made services such as research, analysis, translation and systematization of documentation; logistical and administrative support; use of the virtual platform to exchange, process and share information, among other things. Furthermore, as a result of our past experiences in several precise sectors of intervention, we can facilitate the transmission of learned lessons impacting positively the quality of the work done by our experts.
