SANDOVAL GARRIDO, Luis Eduardo; RIANO BERMUDEZ, Laura Carolina  and  PALENCIA PEREZ, Armando Sixto. Perception of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace for Incarcerated Members of the Military in the Armed Conflict in Colombia. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2019, vol.38, n.spe78, pp.701-727.  Epub Dec 20, 2019. ISSN 0121-4772.

With the implementation of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP), former military soldiers who were because of the armed conflict have been able to reduce sentences and obtain freedom. This document analyses the perception of the JEP by these soldiers based on a survey that identified the type of criminal conviction, the economic and family context, and the perception of the post-conflict for each of the participant soldiers. The results demonstrate that the interviewees consider the main harms of their imprisonment are a family breakdown and unfair treatment between the military and other actors. They hope that being included in the JEP will allow them to have job opportunities and get their families back.
