ISS refresher course  on Conflict Transformation, Peace Settlements and Social Justice in Latin America: Gendered Intersections

Course background

Latin America has seen a number of violent conflicts in the last two centuries. Protagonists of the longest running one – in Colombia – are currently negotiating a peace settlement.

  • Will peace be achieved, and if so what safeguards will there be for social, economic and environmental justice?
  • What will it mean for the socially marginalized communities, such as indigenous people and peasants dispossessed of land through violence and encroachment of plantation and mining companies; for internally displaced people and urban poor; for families of disappeared and women and men who survived sexual and other forms of war violence?

The refresher course will provide participants the opportunity to address these questions using explicit gender and intersectional perspectives, combining their existing and updated knowledge of the global, regional and national dynamics of conflicts and post-conflict transformations in Latin America.
