Abstract

This paper is intended to pose and answer, from a socio-legal perspective, the following research question: how does one narrate the events related to armed conflict and the transition to peace without violating the right to privacy of the victims? How can a journalist record a dramatic event or tell about an injustice that moves their readers while respecting the limits of the victims' private lives? This document examines the tensions of rights that may arise in the narration of the transition to peace as part of the journalistic exercise. It is not an easy task, since the journalist fulfills her democratic responsibility when she informs society of a fact of public interest, such as the exhumations of Bojayá. But the victims are owed protection and tranquility in their intimate grief, in addition to journalistic self-regulation. The legal analysis has attempted to assess the conflict between the victims' right to privacy and the rights to freedom of expression and information, and to the historical truth of journalists and society.
