The victims of the national internal armed conflict have been recognized by the Colombian State as a special protection group, for which various mechanisms have been established that seek to guarantee the effective enjoyment of the rights of truth, justice, reparation and non-repetition; mechanisms that are conceived by some social sectors and groups of victims of the armed conflict as insufficient to guarantee their rights. The spaces of effective participation of victims in political scenarios, has allowed the visibility of the nonconformity related to the processes that allow the integral reparation, where the lack of effective response by the institutionality is conceived as inefficient actions that generate are victimization and do not allow the barriers that the victims encounter from everyday life to find the guarantee of their rights, which must be conceived recognizing the multidimensional factors and the differential approach, in order to give answers from the lived realities and not from the realities thought of by those who project affirmative actions in favor of said population group. The research project "The barriers that victims have to access the mechanisms that guarantee the effective enjoyment of their rights" had as objective to recognize the factors that are established as obstacles in the processes of integral reparation and overcoming of the facts of which they were victims in the context of the national internal armed conflict. The process started by identifying the ethnographic components that characterize the group of victims with which they worked and the barriers they consider from their experiences impede the effective enjoyment of their rights, for which, they also sought to recognize those rights that are most violated and the incidence with which they are affected, allowing an analysis of the multidimensional causes that impede access to the effective enjoyment of rights by the victims of the armed conflict.
