The JEP is part of a whole system including a Truth Commission- CEV, and a “Unit for the search of Missing Persons” –UPBD. Furthermore, this System cooperates organically with the judicial institutions, the reparation commission and of course with the State in general, and is in constant interaction with civil society. The Peace Agreement contains also provisions for in depth structural and institutional reforms.
