The institution that is the subject of this book is not just another of the Colombian legal system. It is the main safeguard of the rights of all Colombians and of the Constitution that was born in 1991 to protect "life, coexistence, work, justice, equality, knowledge, freedom and peace."
It is a work that includes texts by important personalities from the country's political and legal sphere, headed by Judge Alberto Rojas Ríos and former President César Gaviria Trujillo, as well as Rodrigo Uprimny, Karena Caselles, Jorge Enrique Ibáñez and Benjamín Villegas.
Profusely illustrated through a detailed visual tour of the iconic Alfonso Reyes Echandía Palace of Justice, by photographer and designer Andrés Mauricio López, this publication reveals the “institutional heart of the Republic.” Starting from the Plaza de Bolívar and the buildings that surround it, the work takes us, little by little, through the wide corridors, the pleasant interior squares, the different rooms and the various rooms of the building.
It also includes a historical review of the different courts of justice since colonial times. A history of the Constitutional Court, created 30 years ago, its operation and its main debates. Due to its undoubted interest in the international arena, it is also a bilingual Spanish-English edition.
