The Faculty Working Group is part of the larger Colombian Studies Initiative: Past, Present, and Futures. This is a collaboration between NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) and Universidad del Rosario, in Colombia. The Initiative aims to create an Inter-American hub for research, multidisciplinary conversations and exchange of knowledge concerning Colombia. It supports dialogue, inquiry, and research for US, Colombian, and international scholars, students, NGOs practitioners, and the general public interested in Colombia.
The Faculty Working Group offers an interdisciplinary forum that invites faculty from different universities to share their research on particular dimensions of Colombia’s reality. The goal is to establish a conversation among academics, practitioners, students and other interested public to deepen their understanding of current issues affecting the peace process, democratic governance and sustainable development in Colombia. If interested, please contact Professor Sonia M. Ospina (NYU Wagner) and/or Franz Hensel (URosario History, Co-Directors of this initiative.
