Description

The year 2012 represented, for Colombia, a decisive break in the concept of conflict. On the one hand, due to the consideration of the existence of an internal conflict and, on the other hand, due to the beginning of the public phase of the negotiation process with the FARC-EP guerrillas. Law 1448, called the Law on Victims and Land Restitution, is a regulation that has, as its initial purpose, to assign an important place to victims through reparation, restitution and guarantees of non-repetition. Through a qualitative approach and through documentary review and analysis, an explanation will be sought as to whether or not this law marked a change in the identification of the violence in which Colombia has been immersed for more than fifty years. This is how this document, in the first instance, will discuss violence in Colombia; later, the objectives of Law 975 of 2005 or Law of Justice and Peace, will be contrasted with the Law on Victims and Land Restitution; next step, the form of recognition of the victims of the armed conflict by one of the main actors will be presented: the guerrillas, and, finally, the issue of the arguments of detractors and supporters about the existence of an armed conflict in Colombia will be addressed, to conclude that Law 1448 represents an important turning point in the consideration of the conflict in the country.
