Diana Esther Guzmán Rodríguez | August 15, 2009
This publication contributes answers to the challenges based on the need to repair grave violations committed in a context of war, poverty and exclusion.
This book is the result of a participative two-year investigation with victims´organizations from different regions such as the Pacific coast, North of Valle del Cauca and East Antioquia. There are reflections based on factual and conceptual aspects on the principal debates on the reparation policy in Colombia, such as the draft law that pretended to establish a statute for victims and the individual administrative reparation programme. By the same token, the book studies aspects like the transforming dimension of reparations with distributive objective, the pertinence of comparative analysis, the use of differential perspectives, the grass-root principles of justice that must guide reparation and recovery in transitional justice. With this publication, there is the intention to contribute with answers to the challenges based on the need to repair grave violations committed in a context of war, poverty and exclusion.
