  • Definiciones esenciales y situación en Colombia
  • Normas internacionales para la atención y protección de la movilidad humana vinculada a los desastres ambientales y al cambo climático
  • La respuesta del Estado colombiano a la movilidad vinculada a los desastres ambientales y al cambio climático a través de sus políticas públicas
  • Pautas para la formulación de una política pública para la atención de la movilidad humana asociada a causas ambientales y climáticas.
"Colombia es un país altamente vulnerable ante los desastres ambientales y los efectos del cambio climático. El Banco Mundial ha señalado que el 84,7% de la población y el 86,6% de los activos están localizados en áreas expuestas a dos o más amenazas ambientales. Así mismo, el IDEAM ha advertido sobre los peligrosos efectos del cambio climático global, como los procesos de desertización, las lluvias torrenciales y la elevación del nivel del mar. Una de las posibles consecuencias de las catástrofes asociadas a amenazas naturales y al cambio climático es la afectación de los patrones de movilidad humana. Estamos hablando de un amplio espectro de fenómenos que abarcan procesos internos y transnacionales de migración voluntaria y desplazamiento forzado, así como de situaciones de confinamiento involuntario y reubicaciones planificadas. . . . Hasta el momento, este tipo de afectaciones a la movilidad ha permanecido prácticamente invisible a los ojos de las autoridades, de la academia e incluso de la sociedad civil. . . . Esta publicación aboga por una visión más integral de la movilidad humana que incorpore sus dimensiones ambientales y su íntima relación con el modelo de desarrollo del país"--Page 4 of cover.

  • Equality
  • Freedom of speech and freedom of religion
  • Social rights
  • The rights of victims and transitional justice

  • Constitutional amendment and the substitution of the constitution doctrine.
This book provides in English the case law of the Colombian Constitutional Court, which has become one of the most creative and important courts of the global south and the world since its creation in 1991. It offers concise and carefully chosen extracts of the Court's most important cases, along with notes and introductory materials to place them in historical and comparative context. The book covers the Court's landmark rights jurisprudence, including the decriminalization of drug possession, the legalization of same-sex marriage, the protection of social rights through broad structural orders such as the ones covering internally displaced persons and the right to health. It also covers the protection of the rights of indigenous peoples to cultural autonomy and to be consulted before economic projects are undertaken on their land, and the rights of victims of the country's long-running internal armed conflict to truth, justice, and reparations. Also provided are the Court's most noteworthy structural cases, particularly its successful attempt to limit the use of states of exception and its substitution of the constitution doctrine, which allows it to strike down amendments that replace rather than amending core principles of the existing constitutional order. The materials focus on the Court's contributions in a comparative perspective, showing how they are exemplary of a range of problems faced by courts around the world and particularly as an example of aggressive judicial review by the courts of the global south. At the same time, they demonstrate how many of the Court's key cases - such as the judicial review of the peace process with guerrilla groups or the striking down of an amendment to allow a popular president to seek a third term - are reactions to the historical features of the Colombian legal and social landscape.

  • The origins of victimization and the administration of war in Colombia
  • Justice and peace in times of impunity and war
  • Voice, testimony, truth, and memory
  • Maintaining exclusion
  • Conclusions.
This book analyzes the implementation of Law 975 in Colombia, known as the Justice and Peace Law, and proposes a critical view of the transitional scenario in Colombia from 2005 onwards. The author analyzes three aspects of the law: 1) The process of negotiation with paramilitary groups; 2) The constitution of the Group Memoria Historica (Historic Memory) in Colombia and 3) The process of a 2007 law that was finally not passed. The book contains interviews with key actors in the justice and peace process in Colombia. The author analyses the contradictions, tensions, ambiguities and paradoxes that define the practices of such actors. This book highlights that a critical view of this kind of transitional scenario is indispensable to determine steps towards a just and peaceful society.
