Abstract [en]

The Truth Commissions are an extrajudicial mechanism of transitional justice

through which the aim is to satisfy the victims' demand for the truth. In Latin

America, more than five Commissions have been carried out, one of the most

important ones -given the results in its final report and difficulties that had to be

overcome- the Commission for Historical Clarification of Guatemala (in Spanish

Comisión para el Esclarecimiento Histórico de Guatemala and its abbreviation

CEH). Therefore, the CEH is an illustrative case of the successes and failures of

these mechanisms, especially to give light to the Colombian case whose

Commission for the Clarification of Truth is operating (in Spanish Comisión para el

Esclarecimiento de la Verdad de Colombia and its abbreviation CEV).

In this text a comparison between the two commissions is made, in order to

determine which the coincidences are, but also what makes both processes

different from each other.
