Your new field of activity
The implementation of the 2016 peace agreements faces major challenges and requires the support and accompaniment of a committed and informed civil society. Social polarisation, the presence of violent actors and a lack of political will are currently destabilising the peace process.
The National Reconciliation Commission (CCN - Comisión de Conciliación Nacional) was founded on the initiative of the Colombian Bishops' Conference and focuses its work on the peace and reconciliation process in Colombia. It cooperates in various regions with dioceses and other local players in order to initiate and promote regional and local peace and reconciliation initiatives and to strengthen citizens in getting actively involved in political processes. As part of your activities, you will support and accompany regional reconciliation commissions and local players nationwide, thus making an important contribution to church peace work. The regional reconciliation commissions (CCR) are made up of representatives of the church, civil society and political functionaries.
Bogóta is suitable as a location for families with children, with international schools, nurseries and a good health care system.
