Building self-sanctions: the socialisation of the first findings and recommendations for the imposition of restorative sanctions in case 05 of the JEP
CAPAZ in alliance with Universidad Javeriana Cali campus Institute of Intercultural Studies, the University of Göttingen, and supported by Grupo Guernica 37 – Centro, present the main findings of the research included in a concise policy brief that sets out the expectations of the victims of case 05 of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP). This case prioritises the territorial situation in northern Cauca and southern Valle del Cauca, investigating events that occurred in the region between 1993 and 2016.
After a year of research and more than a dozen interviews and collective workshops, on November 25, 2021, some of the most significant results will be shared in an on-site event to be held at Universidad Javeriana in Cali.
You can watch the event online on Thursday 25 November at 8:30am (Colombia time) on the CAPAZ YouTube channel, the Universidad Javeriana Cali campus Institute of Intercultural Studies channels, and those of Grupo Guernica 37 – Centro.
The case studied, 05, is characterised by having the largest number of accredited victims —180,000 so far— and by its ethnic diversity, including dozens of indigenous and Afro-descendant peoples, as well as peasant organisations. Its territorial approach also facilitates a deeper understanding of the dynamics of violence in the region, allowing for the design of local reconciliatory initiatives that respond to specific contexts.
Concerns and recommendations shared during the meetings with victims and institutional actors will be socialised during the academic event, which will include the participation of spokespersons of victims and communities, as well as representatives of the institutions, who will share ideas, suggestions, and initiatives related to some of the main lines of results.
