Guernica has signed Memorandums of Understanding with both the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) and the Truth Commission (CEV) in Colombia. During the past three years, our organization has worked alongside victims of the armed conflict and developed investigative strategies that resulted in the filing of six reports to bring the voice of victims to the center of the country's reconciliation efforts.

These Memorandums are not only a recognition of the efforts and contributions made by Guernica during these years, but an opportunity to embark upon new challenges and projects in order to defend the rights of victims and ensure their effective participation in the transitional process.
