Short video-interview with Sara Koopman (University of Tampere)

Short video-interview with Sara Koopman on the influence of sexism and racism in the peacebuilding process in Colombia. Sara Koopman, who recently visited CEDLA, is a feminist political geographer, peace studies scholar, and Colombianist currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Tampere. She lived in Colombia as a small child and has maintained a connection to the country throughout her life and lived there several times since then. Her doctoral research was on internationals doing a form of peace work in Colombia known as international protective accompaniment. Her postdoctoral research looks more specifically at how in Colombia whiteness is entangled with both geographic imaginaries and imaginaries of peace and development.
