Work AreasBackgroundObjetivesCommissioners
  1. Analyzing the context, political, social and cultural conditions and behaviors which contributed to the situation of violence, both from the State and from society.
  2. Contributing with the administration of justice, when it corresponds, so that it can clarify the crimes and violations to human rights committed both by terrorist organizations and State agents.
  3. Trying to determine the whereabouts, identification and situation of victims and, as possible, to determine the corresponding responsibilities. The Commission does not substitute for the Judiciary or the Prosecutor’s Office, because it does not have jurisdictional functions.
  4. Making moral and material redress proposals for victims or their relatives.
  5. Recommending the reforms it deems convenient as a preventive measure so that no similar experiences are repeated. Recommending also any measures necessary to guarantee compliance with their recommendations.
