TJI and INCORE, with the cooperation of Beyond Skin (part of the Colombian Truth Commission Hub), invite you to this public seminar with a panel of researchers and activists working on the legacy of the conflict in Colombia and the challenges for building sustainable peace.

At the panel discussion, speakers María Cristina Hurtado Sáenz (International consultancy under the IOM and Attorney General's Office agreement), Alejandro Valderrama Herrera (UK & Ireland Hub as a supporting group of the Colombia Truth Commission) and Dr Luke Moffett (QUB Working Group on Reparations) will discuss the challenges of post-conflict Colombia with particular emphasis on diaspora mobilisation, the rights of children & adolescents, and reparations.

We will also have the telematic participation of Carlos Martín Beristain, International Commissioner (Commission for the Clarification of Truth, Coexistence, and Non-Repetition - CEV), to present the work of the commission in the diaspora.

This event is directed to both academic and non-academic audience and will bring together higher education institutions, civil society organisations, and members of the community who might be interested.
