from 27 to 28 November 2017
Exiting violence, build peace and historical memory

International colloquium - 27 & 28 november 2017

One year after the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), this colloquium wants to cross-reference post-conflict experiences in Colombia, Latin America and other parts of the world.

The main topics will be peace processes and their follow-up, emergence of new violences, transitional justice, social movements and cultural creations linked to exiting violence, and relations between memory and History.

This colloquium, oraganised by the chair Global Destinies of Latin America, the Centro Nacional de Memoria Histórica de Colombia and the Violence and Exiting Violence Platform, is part of the France-Colombia year programme. It follows up exchanges and reflexion on the same topics initiated during a conference in Bogotá in June 2017.
