National Summit of Pluralistic Justice

The National Summit of Pluralistic Justice for Living Well is a space for social and institutional articulation which responds to citizens' demand for improved access to justice, anti-corruption strategies, and greater transparency in judicial processes. Civil society, social organizations, academic entities, public and private entities make concrete proposals that are systematized by the Ministry of Justice and used as a guide for the processes of reform of the justice system. The work of the National Summit and the Departmental Pre-Summits is carried out through six working groups. Participation in the National Summit and its Departmental Pre-Summits can be done in a physical or virtual way through the citizen mailbox, website, submitting proposals to the Ministry of Justice, or registering as participants in the Ministry of Justice.
