This document examines three core aspects to this
investigation: the first discusses how the “transition” discourse
is added to and used as a tool in the extensive
development that war and peace discourses have undergone
in Colombia; the second refers to the relationship
between social practices and public policies as regards the
recognition and protection of victims of conflict in Colombia,
particularly internal forced displacement; the third deals
with the concern for the new aspect that the dispute for
the right to reparation adds to the political treatment of a
possible end to the internal armed conflict in Colombia.(excerpt)
