Imagining Peace Otherwise: Five years of the Colombian peace accords experienced from the margins

Society and economy

November 2021 marks the fifth anniversary of the signature of the “Final Agreement to End the Conflict and Build a Sustainable and Lasting Peace” between the Colombian government and the former guerrilla group FARC-EP. Five years into arguably one of the most comprehensive and ambitious efforts to build a more just and peaceful future for Colombia, we invite reflections about the extent to which the country has embarked on a journey to transformative peace.

The conference has two overarching aims: First, we are interested in shedding light on the practices, experiences and future visions of the people who have both lived the reality of organized violence, and fought at the forefront of achieving peace and justice. Since their critical voices often play a marginal role in policy debates concerning the implementation of the Peace Agreement, we want to foster dialogue among alternative views on peace and post-accord development, including the perspectives of social leaders, human rights defenders, community activists, women, campesinxs (peasants), ethnic groups and students, among others. Second, we want to better integrate researchers who are conducting cutting-edge work on post-accord challenges in Colombia.
