Building an Inclusive Peace: Differential approach and intersectionality in the Colombian Peacebuilding Process

junio 20

The Truth Commission Support Group – Germany together with the German Colombian Peace Institute -CAPAZ- works to build and disseminate spaces that discuss pressing issues about the ongoing peace-building process after the signing of the Colombian Peace Accords that ended 52-year of armed conflict between the FARC and the Colombian state.
With a special focus on Truth and Non-Repetition, it is part of the activities of the German Group to bring international organisations, universities, and a broad range of civil society actors interested to know and reflecting upon the work and actions of the Colombian Truth Commission and the activities of the German Node.
To discuss and share the work and experience of the Commission in the consolidation of peace and Truth-Telling, we would like to invite students, academics, experts and people interested in these topics to join our first forum between academia and civil society.
The topics of discussion concern the two cross-cutting differential approaches focused on gender and ethnic inclusion in the work of the Truth Commission, and above all the importance of intersectionality. During the panel, we will exchange thoughts and ideas about the work of the Truth Commission in and outside Colombia. We will also bring special attention to the Final Report post-scenario. The main challenge will be to continue acting based on intersectionality to make the final report known, generate pedagogy, and reach Non-Repetition.
