Al mismo tiempo, Colombia ha empezado nuevas negociaciones, esta vez con el grupo guerrillero ELN.

  • Reaccreditation of CEDLA Master's Program - Overal evaluation = Good

    Last year CEDLA Master Program applied for the reaccreditation with the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). The visitation panel that consisted of Prof. Dr. Dirk Kruyt, Prof. Dr. Ann Varley, Dr. Gerdien Steenbeek and Veronika Macku as the student representative, visited CEDLA during two days in November 2015. Their report appeared in May 2016 with the recommendation to NVAO to grant CEDLA the reaccreditation. At the end of December 2016 the NVAO followed their recommendations and reaccredited the Master Program for six years until 29 December 2022. The overall conclusions were: ‘The panel established that CEDLA offers an attractive master's programme, which is unique in Europe. The panel assessed both the orientation and the content of the curriculum, as well as the facilities, as excellent. Furthermore it assessed the learning outcomes, the curriculum structure, the teaching staff and the tutoring and information, the quality assurance system, the assessment system and the learning outcomes achieved as good. Given the predominance of excellent and good achieved for most parts of the programme assessment, the overall evaluation of the programme by the panel is good.’
