This event is organized by the Colombian Studies Initiative: Past, Present and Futures, a collaboration between New York University’s Wagner School of Public Service, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) and Universidad del Rosario. The Initiative aims to create an Inter-American hub for research, multidisciplinary conversations and exchange of knowledge concerning Colombia. It supports dialogue, inquiry, and research for US, Colombian, and international scholars, students, NGOs practitioners, and the general public interested in Colombia.
 
This symposium brings together academics, practitioners, civil society and civic leaders to discuss the past, present and futures of Colombia. It sheds light on the country’s long experience with internal armed conflict, its recent effort to transition to a post-conflict stage, and the challenges and opportunities that the present juncture implies for the success of enduring peacebuilding efforts.

Session 1 - 11.00am - 12.30pm

Implementation of the Havana Peace Agreement: Achievements and Challenges

Moderator: Arlene B. Tickner, Universidad del Rosario.
- Carlos Andrés Prieto and Gerson Arias, Comisión de la Verdad
- Juanita Villaveces, Universidad Nacional de Colombia
- Angelica Duran, UMASS-Lowell
- Gimena Sanchez, Washington Office on Latin America
- Pastor Alape, Integrante del Consejo Político Nacional FARC y Representante por el Partido FARC en el Consejo Nacional de Reincorporación

Since the government and the FARC signed the peace accord in November 2016, implementation of the six point settlement has confronted numerous obstacles in areas such as rural reform and democratization of land ownership, transitional justice, reinsertion and reintegration of ex-combatants, political participation of former guerrillas and marginalized social groups, human rights protection, illicit drugs and international UN monitoring. This panel will explore some key challenges that currently exist to implementing the peace accords as well as discussing possible strategies for overcoming them.

Session 2 - 2.00pm to 3.30pm

The Persistence of Violence in Colombia

Moderator: Juan Vargas, Universidad del Rosario.
- Cyrus Samii (NYU): “Wartime Combatant Networks and Postconflict Violence”
- Juan Carlos Garzón (Fundación Ideas para la Paz - FIP): “Organized Crime and Persistent Non-State Actors in Post-Agreement Colombia”
- Ana María Arjona (Northwestern): “The multiple logics of violence”

This panel will draw on contemporary and recent historical experiences to discuss substantive issues related to the persistence of violence in Colombia, including the criminal recidivism of former combatants; the consolidation of organized crime and the persistence of non-state armed actors (including FARC dissents); and the role of illegal drugs in fueling violence. These phenomena are the core of the challenges that Colombia will face in the medium run to consolidate peace and promote citizens’ security. Invited speakers will base their interventions on the evidence they have collected as part of their Colombia-specific research and propose ways to address the actual and future challenges to reduce violence in Colombia.

Day 3:
Saturday, 11/21

Session 1 - 11.00am - 12.30pm
*This panel will be held in Spanish.

Intertwined Chronologies of Peace and Violence

Moderator: Franz Hensel & Bastien Bosa, Universidad del Rosario
- Luis Van Isschot, University of Toronto
- Catherine LeGrand, McGill University
- Bastien Bosa, Universidad del Rosario
- Mercedes Tunubalá Velasco, Alcaldesa de Silvia, Cauca

This panel discusses competing chronologies of peace and violence that intersect, overlap, and ultimately shape Colombia’s history. Beyond ideas of unremitting and persistent violence or extraordinary democratic stability, it sheds light on particular historical subjects and communities that defy well-established categories of peace and conflict in Colombia. It also aims to bring the “violence of chronologies” to the table, as established periods might overemphasize the experience of certain social groups, while effacing others.

 Session 2 - 2.00pm to 3.30pm
*This panel will be held in Spanish.

Leadership, Resistance and Subaltern Memories in the Post-Accord

Moderators: Ángela Santamaría, Universidad del Rosario & Sonia M. Ospina, NYU)
- Pasha Bueno-Hansen, University of Delaware
- Kimberly Theidon, Fletcher School, Tufts University
- Angela Santamaria, Universidad del Rosario
- Dany Ramirez, Universidad del Rosario

This panel zeroes-in on the microlevel manifestations of the conflict, exploring the case of gender-based violence against Indigenous and Afrocolombian women in Colombia. Panelists will discuss women’s experience of leadership and resistance in these contexts and unpack key challenges of efforts to strengthen their agency and amplify their voice. Conflict affects women in unique ways, and subaltern women in particular; but their experience becomes invisible when buried within broader statistics and narratives. To understand these microdynamics of violence and the potential emergent leadership, the conversation will privilege feminist, intercultural and participatory action research perspectives. Connecting memory, resistance and leadership contributes to move forward the Symposium conversations and insights about peacebuilding and local governance amid persistence of violence.

 4:00pm to 5:00 pm

Moderator: Franz Hensel (U.Rosario)
