Armed conflict and peacebuilding in Colombia

This course intends to reflect on the context of armed conflict in Colombia that has given way to a series of peace initiatives over the last decades. Although the confrontation has been developing between the forces of the State and different armed groups, its dynamics have not been uniformed over the time. The mainly rural populations became the epicenter of the belligerents' actions, provoking massive human rights violations.  Many communities have been the center of territorial disputes and control, which have left deep scars on their social ties. However, these communities have developed different memory works and strategies to contribute towards the retribution and establishment of guarantees of non-repetition for victims of Colombia’s armed conflict. In this context and going hand in hand with peace, the signed agreements implementation between the Colombian State and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) offer a window opportunity to end 50-plus years of internal conflict. Nevertheless, this process opens a complex panorama with questions and challenges that invite us to multiply the instruments of analysis in an interdisciplinary perspective to achieve a “lasting and sustainable” peace.
