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.

Covid-19 pushes reparations further away in Colombia
The Covid-19 pandemic has severely disrupted the work of Colombia's transitional justice since the country went into mandatory lockdown at the end of March. While the truth commission and the judicial system are on pause, the victims will be even more severely affected by further delays in the long-awaited reparations.
