Christian Contreras, who called on the audience to continue working for peace.

For his part, Dr. Juan Bautista Bardelli Lartirigoyen provided a detailed historical overview of the Constitutional Court in Peru and the role it plays in defending rights and maintaining peace from its foundation until the present day.
