As deputy director of litigation for the Colombian Commission of Jurists, I am in charge of the strategic litigation area for land restitution. Since October 2013, the Colombian Commission of Jurists has represented victims of forced displacement who have also endured the dispossession of their land in the frame of the armed conflict. The Commission has undertaken 1514 emblematic cases that aim to have these lands restituted and to have the victims return to their places of origin. In 372 of these cases the obtained verdicts have protected the victims‘right to restitution and reparation. This action has benefitted 7.704 people, 3.956 men and 3.748 women, and more than 14.000 hectares are being claimed for restitution. Our interest in linking to the network is to enrich ourselves with the technical contributions that members can give us and to share, equally, our experience.
