Colombian institutions have a long tradition of establishing exclusionary relations with the victims of the armed conflict. This has been especially dramatic in the department of Cauca, particularly in areas of continuous violence such as Caldono. The project raises the question as to what standards the process of reparations to the victims of the conflict should adopt. It is a question of identifying the conditions so that the actions to be carried out within the framework of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) are truly participatory and correct the hierarchical visions that have historically denied victims a voice and agency.
The project aims to propose a methodology for dialogue that will help to vindicate the dignity and voice of victims and survivors of reparation processes. This will be articulated around a methodological proposal that integrates the emancipatory aims into three elements: a) the concretion of the effective voices of the victims and communities, b) the determination of the object and design of the reparation, and c) the supervision of the reparation measures.
