Resonance and visibility are two aspects that we want to highlight as successful achievements for our operations in the second semester of 2018. The huge participation in activities organised by CAPAZ in Germany and Colombia evinced the growing interest in our work and in peacebuilding in Colombia. By the end of 2018, the name CAPAZ resonated among academic communities, and political, social and opinion representations of both countries. Confirming the positive balance at the end of 2018, we wish to thank the joint work, trust, and your support. We will continue with our work of contributing to the already existing and rich academic and social work being carried out to build sustainable peace in Colombia. Enjoy the newsletter No. 4 and we will see you in 2019!
We are pleased to present our third issue of the CAPAZ Institute Newsletter. Save the date! The CAPAZ events starting in September in our headquarters at the Claustro de San Agustín in Bogota will be followed by the CAPAZ’ first International Conference in Colombia. Peace and the presidential election in Colombia were central topics to our academic and institutional agenda in Germany and Colombia. In this issue, we share recent activities in the projects supported by CAPAZ and the meetings we held in the country’s different regions. We are also happy to present you the new CAPAZ Brochure and to tell you that the users of our information services have grown substantially along with the number of occasions on which CAPAZ is mentioned in the press. We hope you enjoy the reading!
