Transitional Justice: The great Colombian challenge

No country in the world has conceived and decided to implement such comprehensive and multifaceted justice process as Colombia. This transitional justice was born out of the historic peace agreements, at the end of 2016, between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Trials, truth-seeking, reparations, land and other reforms, the rights of indigenous peoples, the search for the disappeared, the reintegration of ex-combatants, reconciliation initiatives, remembrance work, and so on: in a polarized political context, Justice Info reports and analyzes how the country is implementing an extremely ambitious project, each component of which is linked to the others. An experiment that will inevitably be scrutinized and studied all over the world.

The Colombian transitional justice’s paramilitary dilemma
Colombia’s transitional justice has a seemingly clear mission, to prosecute former members of the FARC and of the military who committed war crimes during the 52-year-long conflict. But another party keeps popping up every now and then, giving the Special Jurisdiction for Peace recurring headaches: the paramilitaries.
