Dealing with the Past

  • Supporting victims in Colombia

    Supporting Victims in Colombia

    In Colombia peace organisation PAX offers support to victims of the armed conflict and their families. In particular, we seek to increase the capacity of victims’ organisations from the Cesar, Cauca and Meta (Macarena) regions to push for the implementation of their rights. Furthermore, in the Cauca region PAX accompanies the reintegration of former (guerrilla) combatants from indigenous and Afro-Colombian communities, who – after the signing of the Peace Agreement – are expected to return to their communities of origin.

The Potocari Memorial Center is an important partner in all this work.

    From 2015 onwards, PAX decided to develop a specific program focusing on Dealing With the Past in the Western Balkan region (Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia), to better facilitate cooperation between local civil society initiatives on memorialization. We also carry out research on this topic, try to link up these initiatives to national and international lobby agendas.
