Building peace, improving health: perspectives from Colombia
The signing of the 2016 peace agreement in Colombia made international headlines, but what happened next? Join us for an evening with perspectives on how investing in people’s health has become crucial to building a stable and brighter future for Colombia.
Join us for an exciting panel discussion with international scholars and artists presenting their views on how people’s health and the provision of healthcare are being experienced in “post-peace agreement” Colombia, and how investing in health could keep contributing towards building sustainable peace. The event will also showcase, through interactive audio-visual displays, collaborative work led by researchers from the University of York and University of the Andes into the health impacts of the Colombian conflict, including an interactive timeline of the conflict and interviews with community health workers, government officials and ex-FARC combatants.
This event is part of the UK-wide ESRC Festival of Social Sciences,
The event runs from 6.30 - 8.30pm and entry is by (free) ticket only
