This report is the fourth in a series monitoring the implementation of a collective reparations program in Peru since 2007, by ICTJ and the Association for Human Rights in Peru (APRODEH). The publication examines the effects of this reparations program through interviews with the beneficiaries and provides a platform for the voices of communities of the Andes and the Amazon to explore to what extent the program has been effective.
The report concludes that communities which have received collective reparation are largely satisfied with the programs implemented to date. Collective reparations include irrigation infrastructure and the provision of drinking water and proper drainage, livestock projects, the construction and expansion of schools, and the construction of community centers. Such projects have been implemented in 1,492 communities severely affected by past violence, a major achievement. However, most respondents also said these measures were not sufficient compensation for the harms incurred. Spanish only.
