Workshop on reporting to JEP and CEV

The workshop “Diálogo con universidades sobre presentación de informes ante la Jurisdicción Especial para la Paz (JEP) y la Comisión de la Verdad (CEV)”, will take place on 3 and 4 October, 2019 at Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (UPB) in Bogotá.

It is part of the activities within the project “Stabilization of Peace in Colombia through Justice and Truth”, carried out by the German-Colombian Peace Institute (CAPAZ), the Centre for the Study of Latin American Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure (CEDPAL) at University of Göttingen, the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) and the Commission for the Clarification of the Truth (CEV).

The project will -based within academia- support the work of the institutions of the Colombian Integrated System of Truth, Justice, Reparation and Non-Repetition.

Taking that into account, one of the first steps towards this goal is to facilitate a workshop addressed to teachers from the associate members of CAPAZ. Collaborators and Magistrates at JEP and CEV will train them in reporting to JEP and CEV. The participants are expected to be able to support and advise victims and humans rights organizations working in their territories and also willing to work along with the JEP and the CEV.

This workshop will be addressed to teachers from universities associated to CAPAZ outside Bogota, specially from regions that have been most affected by the armed conflict. It is expected to repeat this workshop in December, 2019 with participants from associate universities located in Bogota.


Workshop: “Diálogo con universidades sobre presentación de informes ante la Jurisdicción Especial para la Paz (JEP) y la Comisión de la Verdad (CEV)”

3 and 4 October, 2019, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Training workshop in mental health- Credits: photographer: Ana Rosa Ropero

Within the framework of the “improving the mental health of the forcibly displaced in Colombia” project funded by the German Academic Exchange Service  (DAAD) and supported by Instituto CAPAZ, Freiburg University (Germany) and the public health Institute at Universidad Javeriana will teach two courses on the problem of depression in the forcibly displaced population in the Cesar department.

The first course will take place on the 29th of October in La Paz (Cesar) and will be aimed at demobilised FARC-EP members. The second will take place on the 31st of October in Valledupar for the Health sector personnel and employees of the Health department.

This course is a continuation of the consultancy work carried out by Freiburg University and the public health Institute at Universidad Javeriana in the Cesar department. In August 2016, professors Axel Kroeger and Sonia Díaz-Monsalve (Freiburg University) and Enrique Peñaloza and Andrés Cubillos (public health Institute at Universidad Javeriana), gave a training workshop aimed at the personnel working in the mental-health area of the Health Department. In June 2017, Professors Michael Wirsching and Anne-Maria Müller from Freiburg University took part in the training workshops dealing with the psychosocial aspects of health, derived from their participation in the “Global Mental Health” program.

The project “improving the mental health of the forcibly displaced to Colombia’s urban areas”, has a duration of four years and includes two components: the clinical mental health area and its management area.
