Understanding peace as a fundamental axis for the development of the country, the School of Law and Political Science UIS will offer a constitutional law class, open to the public, on the special transitional peace constituencies, on Tuesday, February 8th at 10:00 a. m.
“The special transitional peace constituencies had a stumbling block in the legislative process in 2017, which led to constitutionalize the issue of majorities via tutela. That is, through this action it was intended to ask the tutela judges to verify whether it was achieved in the 2017 votes to gather the required majorities to consider the bill approved, by which the 16 seats were created.
These seats have had to bear the ambivalence of the Colombian institutionality regarding the Final Agreement with the extinct FARC-EP, within which it was agreed to create such constituencies,” explains the School of Law and Political Science in its invitation to the class.
This academic event seeks to provide clarity on the implementation of these constituencies that seek to guarantee political participation in Congress to the victims of the State/FARC-EP conflict in 16 specific territories. The class will be chaired by Professor Diego Hernando Hernández Velásquez in the SEA Computer Room in the Bienestar Universitario building, and will be broadcast live via Facebook: www.facebook.com/UISDerecho.
