Línea Azul/CAPAZ Policy Brief 1-2021: The Comprehensive System for Truth, Justice, Reparation and Non-Repetition (SIVJRNR) addressing the Covid-19 pandemic

Portada/Cover PB1-2021, Línea Azul

We are pleased to present our first 2021 Policy Brief published by the CAPAZ editorial Línea Azul, on the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Comprehensive System. The following is an excerpt from the publication:



“This Policy Brief analyses the main effects suffered by the institutions of the SIVJRNR in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. To conduct the research, approximately twenty online interviews were held between May and July 2020, with officials from different institutions, victims’ representatives, and academics -both women and men-. It also draws on informal interviews, press reviews, and institutional reports on the topic. Given that the current phenomenon is characterized by quick changes and significant uncertainties, this Policy Brief does not intend to draw final conclusions on the matter. Rather, it seeks to open the debate on the consequences of the pandemic for the peace process, and more specifically, for the institutions of the SIVJRNR. The text also offers concrete proposals to address the unforeseeable consequences of this global crisis in relation to SIVJRNRN institutions, civil society organizations, the Colombian government, and the international community. In this respect, the Policy Brief ends with a series of recommendations which, of course, are open to any type of debate, whether public, political, or academic”.
