Title: The role of catholic church in a culture of peace: analysis of the colombian peace process case
Author: Caetano Furtado Guerra, Diana Maria
Abstract: This investigation paper aims to analyse the role of the Catholic Church in a Culture of Peace in the Colombian conflict, particularly in the Colombian Peace Agreement, thus using this conflict as a case-study. In order to examine this, it has been used desk research and literature research, as well as a relevant semi-structured interview with a Church’s representative. The Catholic Church has been very active in the Colombian conflict, from the Liberation Theology roots in the 1960’s to recent developments and engagements with local communities and the government. Due to Colombian’s majority Catholic population and the role of the Catholic Church itself as a provider of support to victims and encouraging forgiveness, it can pave the way to transitional justice and a more holistic Culture of Peace, that can serve as an example to other conflicts.
