Description and results


This project aims to support local civil society and the Colombian State with the implementation and monitoring of transitional justice. The project contributes to building confidence of the Colombian society, particularly women and girls, in the transitional justice system and contributes to the reaffirmation of the rule of law.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased confidence and participation of civil society, in particular women and girls and justice stakeholders to develop and implement gender-sensitive transitional justice mechanisms; (2) emblematic cases of international crimes committed against vulnerable groups, and in particular women and girls, are documented and brought to court by human rights lawyers.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of December 2021 include: (1) developed ten peacebuilding and gender-responsive justice sector recommendations by women victims and civil society leaders representing vulnerable people actioned by decision-makers; and (2) 35 significant advances made on emblematic cases of violations of human rights against vulnerable people, particularly women and girls. These include: (a) one report, including 23 cases of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) developed, presented to and accepted by the Special Jurisdiction for Peace; (b) advances on cases relating to extrajudicial executions, also known as “false-positives”; and (c) granted protection measures to a minor and her family by the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights in two emblematic cases of SGBV.
