This video is based on research conducted by Angelika Rettberg and colleagues on the meanings and the factors shaping reconciliation in Colombia. It shows that age, gender, religion, income, region, and experience with violence matter when it comes to defining who are the most, and the least, likely groups to be willing to engage in reconciliation efforts.
Far from delivering on the promise of providing greater access to justice for victims, the land restitution system in Colombia - where victims of land dispossession and forced abandonment can apply for restitution of their lands lost as a result of the armed conflict - has denied most requests at the administrative stage.
This short video presents our recently concluded research on funding precarity and women’s peace work. This project explored how women’s civil society organisations that are engaged in peace work in Colombia, Nepal, and Northern Ireland experience the funding relationships in which they are embedded.
In recent years, interest has grown in how Transitional Justice (TJ) can approach colonial harms and their long-lasting effects, because of a lacuna in both TJ practice and academic research. Scant attention has been paid, particularly, to how peace processes themselves can be undermined by ongoing colonial legacies.
The policy-research project conducted by hub members Aaron Acosta and Camilo Sánchez aimed to shed light on the concerning phenomenon of high application rejection rates by Colombia’s Land Restitution Unit, where victims of land dispossession and forced abandonment can apply for restitution of their lands lost as a result of the armed conflict.
In this research we have identified a number of opportunities for donors and civil society organisations to work together to better understand the needs on the ground and recognise the practicalities of working in conflict and post-conflict settings.
This document provides an overview of the situation of women and gender in Colombian society; politics and the economy amidst armed conﬂict and peacebuilding.
