The Special Jurisdiction for Peace (SJP) is the justice mechanism of the Comprehensive System for Truth, Justice, Reparation and Non-Repetition created by the Final Agreement for Ending the Conflict and Building a Stable and Lasting Peace between the Colombian government and the former Revolutionary Armed Forces – People´s Army.

The talk will be followed by a reception organized by the Permanent Mission of Colombia.
