Transitional Justice

The rights of victims and peace processes are a central aspect in the mission of the IPC, so since the signing of the Final Agreement for the Termination of the Conflict and the Construction of a Stable and Lasting Peace and the creation of the Comprehensive System of Truth, Justice, Reparation and Guarantees of Non-Repetition (SIVJRNR), the area of Transitional Justice has developed research, projects and reports in coordination with different public and/or private institutions, in which they are:

Commission for the Clarification of the Truth, Coexistence and Non-Repetition (CEV)
IPC has participated in the preparation of the following reports:

  • Instituto Popular de Capacitación, Corporación Jurídica Libertad, Centro de Fe y Culturas, Fundación Madre Laura and Mujeres Caminando por la Verdad (2021) Comuna 13: Memorias de un territorio en resistencia. Serious human rights violations and resistance to violence in the 13th commune of Medellín during the period 1995-2020. Medellín. See report.

In addition, we have participated in various forums for dialogue and dissemination of the CEV's final report.

Search Unit for Missing Persons (UBPD)
In coordination with the UBPD, different projects have been carried out for the elaboration of contexts on forced disappearance, identification of searching families and creation of victims' networks for the search. Since 2020, projects have been carried out in the subregions of Urabá, Southwest and Bajo Cauca, and it is currently developing actions in the subregions of North, West and East Antioquia.

Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP)
In addition to the reports that as an Institute were delivered to the JEP, the IPC is currently developing a project to provide psychosocial accompaniment and judicial representation in the framework of Macro Case No. 08 of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace, which has jurisdiction over "crimes committed by members of the security forces, other agents of the State, or in association with paramilitary groups, or civilian third parties, for cause, on occasion, or in direct or indirect relation to the Colombian armed conflict".

With the psychological counseling and legal representation provided to victims, the IPC aims to contribute to the participation of victims before the JEP, guaranteeing access to justice, ensuring the rights of victims to truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-repetition. In the work of representation and psycho-legal accompaniment, the maximum possible guarantee of the rights of the victims will be ensured, promoting their integral, voluntary, effective, informed, accessible and differential participation. Likewise, during the accompaniment, the rights to equality and non-discrimination, human dignity and the protection of victims and their interests will be guaranteed.
