UPB Facebook Live event on social and economic rights in peace processes

CAPAZ associate member, Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana de Medellín (UPB), will be presenting its Facebook Live event: “Social and economic rights in peace processes around the world”.

Lina Malagón (University of Ulster, Northern Ireland) will address the conference and Porfirio Cardona, Coordinator of the Doctorate in Political and Legal Studies at the UPB and spokesperson for the university at CAPAZ, will moderate the event.

The event will take place on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. (Colombia time) and broadcast on Facebook @UPBPostgrados:



Peace processes around the world create great challenges for societies. Is it really possible to achieve peace after a peace agreement has been concluded? In countries where poverty and exclusion have preceded violence, and socio-economic circumstances are a cause of conflict, exacerbated by long periods of violence, should peace processes address social, economic and cultural justice claims? Have these issues been included in peace agreements around the world? What social, economic and cultural rights provisions have been included? Have these clauses had a gender focus for women? This presentation will analyse these questions to encourage critical discussion in Colombia and globally.
