Perspectives on Agriculture, Land, and Peace-Building in Colombia

Juan Camilo Sandoval, Julián David Cortés-Sánchez, and Claudia Steiner

August 31, 2017 


How are urban and rural landscapes, livelihoods, and subjectivities changing in the midst of current peace-building efforts in Colombia? How do farmers, victims of the armed conflict, and former combatants face the political, cultural, and economic challenges of these transformations? Colombian researchers will share their perspectives on how urban agriculture initiatives and land restitution processes provide fruitful vantage points for thinking about these questions.
