Meeting between the research team of the Chair and members of the IFEA, the IdA and the French Embassy in Colombia:

  • Julie Massal, Representative of the French Institute of Andean Studies (IFEA) in Colombia.
  • Laetitia Braconnier Moreno, Coordinator of the Institute of the Americas – Andean Pole.
  • Francesca Fuentes, in charge of University and Scientific Cooperation at the French Embassy in Colombia.
  • Enrique Sánchez Albarracín, in charge of University and Scientific Cooperation at the French Embassy in Colombia.

Meeting with actors of the scientific and academic cooperation between France and Colombia.

From this meeting, the members of the Normandy Chair for Peace were able to better understand the actors and the dynamics of cooperation between France and Colombia.

Indeed, there is a network of approximately 300 Franco-Colombian researchers and 30 universities that has been consolidated around COLIFRI (Franco-Colombian Association of Researchers). This association seeks to promote research, development and innovation activities that will strengthen Franco-Colombian research projects and teams.

COLIFRI allows a direct exchange between researchers of different disciplines and allows the meeting and the synergy for the construction of collaborations and common research projects.

In the environmental field, some of their projects are related to climate change, renewable energies and peace building from the territories. They also carry out specific research related to indigenous knowledge and the rights of indigenous peoples in different parts of Colombia.

Taking into account the different areas of research conducted by the Normandy Chair for Peace, an invitation is extended to COLIFRI and other Franco-Colombian research actors, such as IFEA and IDA, which conduct field research on environmental and social issues, for future exchanges and collaborations in the field of peace, transitional justice and the environment.
