How might testimonies of violence contribute to truth, justice, and reconciliation in Colombia
and beyond? This day-long workshop will explore this question through three activities. We will
kick off the morning with a graduate student paper workshop with DPhil students working on
topics related to peace building/post-conflict in Colombia. The afternoon will begin with a
virtual dialogue with former FARC combatants, Professor Gonzalo Sánchez—former head of
Colombia’s National Center for Historical Memory, and audience members. The discussion will
be followed by a keynote address by Sergio Jaramillo, former High Commissioner for Peace.
10am-12:30pm: Graduate student paper workshop with DPhil students working on topics
