The Governance of the Global Cocaine Supply Chain

Start: Jul 4, 2016 9:30:00 AM
End: Jul 4, 2016 4:30:00 PM

UCL Institute of the Americas
Popular reports on drug trafficking often focus on localized violence. The cocaine trade, however, is not a series of isolated spaces affected by a product, but, rather, is an interconnected set of experiences, systems, and processes. This workshop will bring together scholars to examine the nature of the linkages between sites along cocaine’s global supply chain and the implications of those interconnections for social, political, and economic life along the cocaine supply route. By integrating existing site focused qualitative research the workshop will provide a deeper understanding of the impact of illegal commodity flows and offer a stronger basis for understanding the ramifications of drug policy.

Territorial Peace in Colombia: Perspectives from a Local Level

Start: Jul 7, 2016 6:00:00 PM
End: Jul 7, 2016 8:00:00 PM

Territorial Peace in Colombia: Perspectives from a Local Level3
Peace dialogues between the Colombian Government and the FARC and ELN guerrillas are the first step to end sixty years of internal armed conflict. Peace, however, is by no means guaranteed. Distrust and opposition to the dialogues, violence against community leaders and human rights defenders, and persistence of armed groups, are among the most alarming factors threatening the development of the dialogues and future implementation of the agreements. Given this, it is necessary to envisage post-conflict challenges from a territorial perspective, recognising the different effects that the conflict has had in each territory, and encouraging the active involvement of local inhabitants in peace building.
