“THE PEACE PROCESS AND CONSTITUTIONAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN COLOMBIA” INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR
From the 8th to the 9th of October 2018, in Cáceres.
Once the Final Agreement between the FARC-EP guerrillas and the Colombian State has been signed, a period of peace construction begins in order to put an end to an armed conflict that has lasted 52 years and has left more than 8 million direct victims behind among cases of displacement, homicides, forced disappearances, tortures and secrets. The peace process is the first means that intends to include all international standards in terms of transactional justice and entails a significant reform of the Colombian legal order in order to comply with the measures envisaged in the Agreement, including the introduction of a transitory title of the 1991 Constitution and a determination to introduce development in territories that have suffered the abandonment of the State.
This seminar tackles the innovations that the Colombian process implies in the transitions to reach peace, as well as the problems and challenges it poses. It will thus count with first level specialists on the matter and with people who actively negotiated in the process.
