This study examines victims’ participation in Guatemala in three official TJ mechanisms, that is, mechanisms formally acknowledged or promoted by the Guatemalan State: a. The CEH, created as part of the Peace Accords between the government and the guerrilla, and directed by the United Nations. b. The trials for crimes occurring during the internal armed conflict that have been held in Guatemalan courts, including the case that charged former head of State Efraín Ríos Montt with genocide against the Ixil people. c. The National Reparations Program (PNR), created in 2003 by the Guatemalan government to provide reparations to victims of the armed conflict, whose mandate concludes in 2023.
