TU Darmstadt | October - December 2023
In my research, I investigate environmental conflicts and address issues of peace studies, participation as well as gender in Colombia. Having lived in Colombia and the longstanding armed conflict for all of my life, I am particularly interested in the local and peaceful resistance of marginalized groups such as women, LGBTIQ+ people, or ethnic groups against political violence. It is my goal both as a scholar and a peacebuilder to provide space for a new generation to think and act critically. During my fellowship at TraCe, I will focus on the connections between mining and environmental conflicts, as well as the recent strikes in Colombia, and use qualitative methods to examine the role of women, LGBTIQ+, and technology in particular.
