Course Description:  Colombia recently ended one of the world’s longest wars by negotiating the world’s most inclusive peace agreement, which addresses gender, race, and sexuality. These provisions were controversial and Colombians voted against the first version of the accord. Students in this class will learn about the conflict, the peace process, and ongoing struggles to implement the accords, with a focus on inclusive peace measures. This course is a collaboration with the Universidad del Rosario (UR), and the ten days in Colombia will be done with Colombian students of UR.
