The Center’s task is to coordinate different research projects that reconstruct the history of armed conflict in Colombia, making a particular emphasis in the experience of the victimized population. The Center is tasked with the preparation, development and publication of reports about emblematic and thematic events in Colombia’s armed conflict.
Through its task of building a historical account of the conflict, the NCHM organizes workshops in the regions involving community leaders, victim family members, public institutions and citizens interested in the reconstruction and dissemination of a historical memory narrative.
Additionally, it follows-up on Justice and Peace decisions regarding symbolic and collective reparation from the State. The NCHM also accompanies victimized communities that have been part of the Center’s investigations.
