An important objective of the NCHM is to elaborate and spread a narrative about armed conflict in Colombia that identifies “the reasons for the emergence and evolution of illegal armed groups” (Law 975 of 2005), as well as the different truths and memories engendered by that violence, with a preferential approach for the voices of victims that have been suppressed or silenced. In addition, the Center formulates proposals of public policy that support the effective exercise of the right to truth, justice and reparation and assurances of non-repetition.
These are some of the reports, built on the voices of the victims, regarding emblematic cases of violence in Colombia:
