The Observatory of Territorial Rights of Indigenous Peoples (ODTPI) of the National Commission of Indigenous Territories (CNTI), in alliance with the Normandy Chair for Peace and the Polo Bogota of the Institute of the Americas (IdA), will carry out the transmission of two webinars with the analysis of point 1 of the Final Peace Agreement, signed in 2016 between the Colombian State and the FARC-EP guerrilla, now demobilized. This theme will be approached from the perspective of ancestral knowledge, in the area of the rights of nature and the rights of future generations.
The Colombian transitional justice system that emerged from the peace agreement is noteworthy for a number of reasons. The integration of differential approaches in this agreement, including ethnic, territorial and environmental approaches, is unprecedented. However, new socio-environmental conflicts have erupted at the expense of the rights of local populations and nature. The territorial rights of indigenous peoples are particularly affected.
Through these two webinars, we wish to highlight the interweaving of different normativities to address transitional justice in an intercultural sense and to give voice to ethnic movements, particularly indigenous communities that continue to resist in various ways. The meeting will be an intercultural exercise with dialogues between representatives of the National Commission of Indigenous Territories and Mestizo, Colombian and French researchers
1st panel: Peace, environment and nature’s rights in the post Colombian peace agreement
July 21 at 5:30 pm

The extractive economy, the closure of the agricultural frontier and deforestation are dynamics that violate the territorial rights of indigenous peoples and go against the rights of nature that they defend.
In order to reflect on the special relationship between the rights of nature and the rights of indigenous peoples, it is planned to highlight the latter’s own knowledge of peace, which originates in their connection with their territories. In this sense, in order to be sustainable and durable, peacebuilding must include deep and plural concepts that include the vision of land and territory defended by indigenous peoples.
