Línea azul

Línea Azul publications are part of the CAPAZ and CEDPAL joint project called: “Stabilisation of peace in Colombia through justice and truth”, intended to contribute to the strengthening of the Comprehensive System of Truth, Justice, Reparation and Non-Repetition (SIVJRNR) within the framework of the peace process in Colombia. CAPAZ, CEDPAL, the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) and the Commission for the Clarification of the Truth all work together in the project. Línea Azul documents are designed to promote the circulation of knowledge on issues that affect the development of the mandate of the institutions in the SIVJRNR, among the non-jurisdictional or non-expert public in transitional justice.
