In this chapter we analyze the Transitional Justice framework defined by the peace agreement between the FARC-EP and the Colombian government. In analyzing the Transitional Justice framework, we will examine the principles that inspired the agreement on victims and four of the mechanisms described in it: The Truth Commission, the Unit for Searching for disappeared people, the measures for reparation considered, and the guarantees of non-repetition stated. In addition, we will analyze the Special Jurisdiction for Peace. In the final section, we will analyze some possible scenarios for the future of the implementation of the Transitional Justice agreements, reflecting on the uncertainties surrounding the implementation of the agreements and how its implementation can provide for legal stability (or instability) for different constituents and for the peace project in Colombia.
