Who We Are
The Bolivia Information Forum (BIF) was formed in mid-2006 by a group of people interested in the country and keen to make information about recent political and social developments in Bolivia more easily available to a UK-based audience. All of BIF's founding members have expertise in and direct experience of Bolivia or Latin America in general.
The aims of the BIF are to promote the rights and interests of the people of Bolivia, in particular the poorest sectors, by:
(a) Promoting support for groups in Bolivia which represent the poorest sectors and defend their rights;
(b) Increasing awareness about Bolivia in the UK through educational activities, information- sharing, discussion activities, campaigns and cultural events;
(c) Lobbying decision makers in the UK or elsewhere on issues raised by developments in Bolivia;
(d) Promoting human and other rights in Bolivia and lobbying and campaigning where rights are abused or are in danger of being abused;
(e) Furthering links between organisations with similar concerns in Bolivia and the UK;
(f) Coordinating and working with other organisations, such as non-governmental organisations and other Latin American groups which have similar objectives, in Britain and in other countries.
