Gender & Ethnic Approach in the Colombian Truth Commission’s Work: A View of the Legacy

The inclusion of an ethnic and gender approach in the Commission for Truth, Coexistence, and Non-Repetition (CEV) was a mandate derived from the Colombian Peace Accord and the result of a long struggle by ethnic, women’s and LGBTIQ+ organizations.

Lina Malagón, lecturer in gender and politics at the University of West England, will present a comparative analysis of the Commission’s methodology, findings, and recommendations on the ethnic, women’s and LGBTIQ+ chapters of the CEV’s final report and its transmedia archives. It will explore critical points of this analysis, lessons learned, and what remains as a working agenda for future implementation of the CEV’s recommendations.

Following the presentation, Jenna Sapiano, Kroc Institute visiting fellow, will offer her comments as a discussant. The event will be moderated by Josefina Echavarría Alvarez, director of the Peace Accords Matrix (PAM) and professor of the practice. This event was recorded on November 28, 2023.
