Hosted by the Colombian Studies Initiative, community conversations offer the opportunity for community members to engage in deep conversations around ongoing issues and critical events relevant to Colombia. In this edition, we will host a dialogue between a group of Indigenous women from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and from the Colombian Amazon on the challenges of the fight against gender-based violence in the Colombian post-agreement.

This conversation tells some experiences, learnings and challenges of intercultural popular legal education and participatory action research when dealing with issues of this nature. The conversation will be accompanied by Angela Santamaria, professor at the Universidad del Rosario.
