Political Economy of Reconciliation
The project seeks to understand what reconciliation means in different cultural and war contexts and to examine how socioeconomic conditions and gender realities shape people’s experience and expectations. One of the research’s purposes is to design better reconciliation policy aimed at specific social groups, according to their expectations and needs. The project will include policy papers for, and workshops with, the Colombian Truth Commission and Special Peace Jurisdiction; academic publications; and an outreach conference to share the project’s findings.
