Call for Proposals: Colombian Peace Process Panel Series

The Colombian peace process is one of the momentous events in contemporary Latin America. Following its vision to disseminate and mobilize knowledge of Latin America and the Caribbean through networks and partnerships in Canada and abroad, the Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS) wishes to foster a deeper understanding of this complex and difficult process.

Consequently, in the context of its Annual Conference, to be held at the University of Guelph on June 3-4, 2017, CALACS will host a series of panels on all aspects of the Colombian peace process, including but not restricted to its political, historic, economic and cultural dimensions. We also encourage a comparative discussion with other peace processes in Latin America.

We invite you to submit a proposal on any topic related to the Colombian peace process or its comparative dimension, be they for a full panel or a single paper, to the Conference organizing committee. The panels on the Colombian peace process will follow the Conference's regular evaluation procedure (please visit our website:
