Cooperation for Development presents: International higher education in post-conflict Colombia

Post-conflict Colombia faces numerous possibilities and challenges in education, especially at the university level. The new political realities of the country favour the connection of more faculty and students in a wider international academic scenario, but they also demand actions to empower non-traditional students to reach their potential in and beyond the country. This session will share various experiences on building capacities for internationalisation for peace consolidation.
