Between ‘el Perdón’ and ‘el Paredón’: International Standards and Transitional processes in Colombia
This chapter gives a detailed recount of international jurisprudence and the limitations that it imposes, as well as the possibilities it offers to the countries in transition.
This book’s objective is to complete a comprehensive presentation of the role of a judge as “director” or “manager” during the judicial process.
One could say that comparative jurisprudence is any kind of work in which international general jurisprudence is broken into pieces to articulate a national, regional, tribal or otherwise group-base experience with rather abstract ideas. This strategy, then, would lead to the juxtaposition of a national, regional or group adjective and the very word "jurisprudence".
The book contains the text of the Colombian political Constitution, commented edition, including the relevant doctrine and jurisprudence on each of the articles. The original texts upon which Legis has done successive updates were elaborated by Catalina Botero.
