Supporting a Democratic Peace Process with post-conflict peacebuilding

In support of Colombia’s peace process, CIPE has worked with a consortium of partners to support dialogue in post-conflict zones and provide input into the country’s fast-track legislative process on issues such as taxation, property rights, and agriculture. As part of this work, the Confederation of Chambers of Commerce (Confecámaras), Institute of Political Science (ICP), Jaime Arteaga & Asociados (JA&A), and CIPE produced a guide to responsible investment in the post-conflict zones based on a series of consultative meetings between local residents and private sector representatives organized by the partners. CIPE’s other partner, the Foundation for Superior Education and Development (Fedesarrollo), has produced significant research, analysis, and policy advice on land rights and illicit coca cultivation in the post-conflict zones due to CIPE’s support.
