ICHEM Seminar

José Restrepo - President Universidad del Rosario

For more than half a century, Colombia has experienced armed conflict between government forces and illegal organizations. However, it is important to remember that Colombia is considered one of the oldest democracies in Latin America. Far from collapsing in the midst of violence, universities in Colombia including the most elite ones have transformed themselves to consolidate democracy and contribute to peace. Innovations have been made in relation to widening access to include young ex combatants, developing interdisciplinary research to contribute to peace, implementing transformative pedagogy and reaching out to excluded communities. The presentation will focus on how such innovations came into being, how major obstacles were overcome and the lessons for universities in other countries.

The seminar will be followed by drinks and canapes.
