The new capaz Policy Brief: Indigenous peoples, territories, and peace initiatives in international criminal justice
The most recent CAPAZ Policy Brief is called The environment and indigenous peoples in the context of the armed conflict and the peacebuilding process in Colombia: implications for the Special Jurisdiction for Peace and international criminal justice.
“The objective of this Policy Brief is to assess the impact of the armed conflict in Colombia on the environment and indigenous peoples, and the application of the norms of IHL and international criminal law (IPL) to this conflict, as well as their implications for the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (SJP) and international criminal justice. It addresses the implications of the armed conflict and the peacebuilding process for indigenous peoples’ rights and environmental protection in Colombia, and provides a brief background to the creation of the JEP”.
This Policy Brief is part of the CAPAZ Línea Azul publications, which includes academic works related to the Comprehensive System of Truth, Justice, Reparation and Non-Repetition (SIVJRNR).
