National, Local and Gender Contexts of Violence and Democracy

 

An interdisciplinary panel of scholars will discuss new forms of violence and democracy in Post-Peace Accord Colombia. Communities across rural and urban spaces are experiencing different conditions of social life that have led them to question traditional democratic values and practices. In this panel, led by Professor Patricia Tovar (John Jay College and GC-CUNY), we will discuss how both transformed political violence and contemporary democratic participation are reshaping the life of youth, women and grassroots activists.
