Dr Kate Flynn's Colombian TalksFriday 28 February 2014
Dr Flynn has been giving two talks in Colombia. Both are based on her experience in Cyprus and part of developing a broader critique of foreign aid and peace-building.
The first, “‘Not Open to the Public’: International Aid and the Cyprus Peace Process,” took place at the international seminar ‘International Cooperation in Post-Conflict Scenarios’ at Universidad Icesi (Cali) on Wednesday 26th February. The second, “International Aid and the Cyprus Peace Process: Does International Aid to CSOs Support Peace?” was part of the panel ‘Post-Conflict International Cooperation: Beyond the Promises and Numbers’ at the third Congress of the Colombian International Studies Association at Universidad EAFIT (Medellin) on Friday, 28 February.
Later in the year she is co-running the workshop “Connecting Peace and Conflict Studies with Professional Practice” at the Sarajevo Peace Event (Bosnia-Herzegovina) 6th - 9th June 2014.
