CAPAZ supports research projects that implement an interdisciplinary approach to address peacebuilding and the dynamics of a society in transition in Colombia. The projects analyse topics such as:


  • Transitional justice
  • Implementation of peace in the territories
  • Peace and conflict in educational policies
  • Psychosocial aspects of health in vulnerable populations
  • Memory construction and discourses of truth
  • Peace and social inequalities
  • The role of victims in peacebuilding
  • The protection of social leaders and human rights defenders
  • Geographical information systems for territorial reconstruction
  • Differential approaches to peacebuilding
  • Sustainable development and environmental peace


Thanks to the work with local communities, these projects have a direct impact on Colombia’s regions, especially those most affected by the armed conflict. The projects are financed directly by CAPAZ or other sources of cooperation and implemented by CAPAZ, its founding and associate members, and other institutions or organisations.
