In Guaviare, farmer families are betting on networking to build peace in their territories. Gathering different partners and approaches, they are now united in the Guaviare Peace Network to collectively support each other in their productive, organizational, and economic projects.
This “Empirically Speaking” column explores the ways that collaboration and coordination can act as drivers of trust in local government and data from OEF's PASO Colombia program that shows a meaningful correlation.
PASO Colombia joins Voices from the Territory, a project in which we will work alongside communities in 40 PDET municipalities to collaboratively formulate communication projects on their peace-building experiences, using diverse expressions of art, media and culture.
In the event "Peace in Theory and Practice: A Discussion on Peace Systems", the researcher Douglas Fry and the director of PASO Colombia, Juan Fernando Lucio, joined in a conversation about their theories of peacebuilding and the practical experience in the Colombian context.
