CAPAZ is launching a call for applications for research projects on peacebuilding in Colombia of which it will fund a maximum of seven (7) research projects with a grant of up to €5,000 (five thousand euros) each. The project should be implemented between July 2021 and June 2022 (note: given the current pandemic, the dates for project completion are open to possible changes so as to ensure that fieldwork conditions are met).
