  • 30/03/17 CONFERENCIA
    Procesos de paz comparados: lecciones de Guatemala para Colombia

    El 30 de marzo el CEDLA organiza en colaboración con Peace Brigades International una conferencia sobre los procesos de paz en Guatemala y Colombia. En noviembre del 2016 culminó el proceso de paz con las FARC. El gobierno de Colombia y las FARC firmaron un acuerdo, poniendo así fin a un conflicto de más de medio siglo. Al mismo tiempo, Colombia ha empezado nuevas negociaciones, esta vez con el grupo guerrillero ELN. Mientras que Colombia todavía tiene un largo camino por recorrer, Guatemala cumple 20 años desde la firma de
    los acuerdos de paz con la URNG. +INFO

  • BA 8. GENDER, FAMILY AND SOCIAL MOBILITY IN LATIN AMERICA

  • Period: 4 April – 30 June


    This course investigates the dynamics of gender relations in Latin America, mainly in the urban areas. In the context of gender inequality, poverty and social mobility, case studies will be presented that will offer examples of daily experience. +INFO

  • BA 7. SCRIPTING ETHNOTYPES IN LATIN AMERICAN VISUAL CULTURE

  • Period: 5 April – 24 May 2017


    The academic objective of this course is to increase knowledge of how humans interact by identifying others as opposed to themselves using commonplaces and stereotypes — or ethnotypes. At the center we find the images people meet on a daily basis at the Internet, in the cinema and on television; and passing by murals of local street artists. +INFO

  • BA10. POLITICAL ECONOMY OF COMMODITY DEPENDENCE:
    Oil and Drugs in Venezuela and Colombia Compared

  • Period: 9 May – 27 June 2017


    This course focuses on the political economy of resource dependence in developing countries, with a special focus on Venezuela and Colombia in comparative perspective. To what extent are natural resources a “curse?” This curse refers to the neo-structuralist idea that an abundance of natural resources is detrimental for development. +INFO
