CAPAZ and Los Andes Seminars on Peacebuilding

CAPAZ and Los Andes Seminars on Peacebuilding

CAPAZ and Universidad de Los Andes have organised a series of online seminars on peacebuilding methodologies, scheduled to take place on Wednesday, October 14, 21 and 28, 2020, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. (Colombia time).

The seminars provide an opportunity for students and professionals in peacebuilding studies to meet and discuss research and training processes. They explore emerging issues and topics of interest in a rapidly developing and complex area of knowledge and practice. The inter-institutional work between CAPAZ and Universidad de Los Andes is enhanced by this offer, which also promotes the dissemination of reflections from universities, research centres, social organisations and other entities to a wide audience.

Each meeting has its own transmission access, which you will find by downloading the information sheet of each colloquium below:

October 21, 2020. Peacebuilding methodologies: a look at territorial peace.

October 28, 2020. How do we know that peace builds peace?
